Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Now, now Canadian Sistergirl! Don't pout.

Enter. Here. Now.

Maybe the august panel of Smackdown Judges are weighted in the favour of pretty blondes who live in the Toronto 'burbs and have great kitchens. :rolleyes:

(And let's choose trembling lower lips at a hundred yards and see who wins. :smile: )

You're on! And by the way, if you are the challenger, I get to choose the weapon :raz: I choose, fluttering eye lids, quivering lips, a single tear tracking down the cheek, a delicate flush to the cheekbone, a luminous sheen to the eye, a downcast sweep of the eyelash, a tremulous quiver to the lip. Madame.....?

Weapons that never fail:

Heaving bosom, downcast eyes.

(Hmm...a foeman worthy of my steel! :rolleyes: )

Write me a story, Madame!

(See Marlene, it's easy. You already have.)

Please wave the vinaigrette under my nose. Georgette Heyer fans everywhere know I'm not talking salad dressing.

Y'all are reminding me of child star Margaret O'Brien, who asked the director, "Do you want that tear to roll all the way down my cheek, or just halfway down?" (Or words to that effect.)

A heaving bosom (at least at that age) was not within her repertoire. I almost said "within her reach" but I don't know if she ever acted with that scene-stealer, Olivia de Havilland, who was notorious for her own heaving bosom, which apparently she could inflate and deflate like a pneumatic air-mattress. Come to think of it, I don't want to place Olivia's bosom within reach of Margaret O'Brien under any circumstances. That's just a little too "Last Emperor" for me.
