I am happy to announce, to anyone who might be even remotely interested, that my fever has now abated and that I appear to be coming out of whatever it was that I was in.
However in the clarity of the moment I realized to my horror that I should apologize to Evelyn for calling her a "gentleman" ! There is, of course, no excuse for such insulting behaviour, and I am not going to pretend that I have one.
Perhaps it was her reference to "girding up ones loins" that confused me and left me with an unfortunate association lodged somewhere in a remote, and hitherto uncharted, recess of my feverish brain?
That being said, I remain hopeful that, with the benefit of hind sight, you will all see fit to attribute this latest breach in message board decorum to the debilitating, and the now well documented effects of "Agent Orange" upon the writer.
