my grandmother used to tell me stories of her odd litle adventures and for some reason this one popped into my head this evening




before she married, she worked as a maid in a big old house in the wilds of Northumberland. This was the 1920's. She had a pet fox & used to stay up all night dancing with my grandfather & her ambition was not to marry, but to be a cook...anyway, i digress...

she had to share her room with another girl. Although my grandmother wouldn't easily use the word, this girl was a lesbian & one night, she made a pass at my grandma BUT before my grandmother could turn her down a BAT flew thru' the open window and the girl, convinced it would tangle up in her hair, grew hysterical & tore down the bedroom curtains to wrap herself up in!

Her hysteria apparantly caused her to be TAKEN AWAY TO THE LOCAL ASYLUM!!! (coincidentally I worked there one summer)

Goodness me.
