I have no idea what brought this to mind, but I thought I would share.
1. In Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy goes on all kinds of mysterious errands. He comes and goes to who knows where. Facebook has kind of done away with all the mystery. “Mr. Darcy is @ Applebees with Mr. and Miss Bingley.”
2. This one really only pertains to those of us living in small spaces. But think of the concept of “taking a turn about the room”. It really only works if you live in a very large house. Which I do not. I’m picturing Miss Bennett and Miss Bingley in my apartment taking a turn..actually about 12 steps would probably do it.
3. The men hate dancing. Hate might be a strong word, but many men today do not like dancing. At least back then they pretended to.
