    The book cover illustration makes Elizabeth Tilton look like a victim of serious feminine derangement.

    I believe SFD (as it’s now known) is caused by a dropped womb, another “malady” of the era.

    (You’d have thought someone would have had the manners to pick up those displaced parts….)

    This is hysterical.

    AEB: if you can find it, read Florence King’s Southern Ladies and Gentlemen, esp. the chapter headed “You can tell she has good blood: she’s delicate.” There you can read about descending (“The doctor said it was hangin’ by a single thread!“), fluttering, and tilted wombs, among other things. It was the descending variety that affected Ms. King’s family. One summer she was at a family retreat on Hilton Head Island with a cousin who had received the “single thread” warning. The cousin was carrying a bowl of strawberry pudding when a plane from a nearby naval air station broke the sound barrier, and the boom caused the cousin to lose her grip on the bowl. The pudding landed on the floor with a “splat”, causing her mother hysterics.

    When I was a high school sophomore in Tampa, my world history teacher was the basketball coach, the year the team went 0-24. Needless to say, Coach (a really nice guy) was a bit distracted that year; for example, he confused Emmeline Pankhurst with Lydia Pinkham. Not as bad as it seems, since Pinkham (who was from my wife’s home town) was an advocate for women’s rights (in addition to the right to be free from cramps, “that bearing down feeling”, and “flatulency”).

    Thanks, Claude. I’ve alerted all my female acquaintances to be ever-vigilant.

    And Homer, sorry to steer this thread ever more into the abyss of gynecological distress when it rightly belongs to the promotion of your very excellent tours–now New and Improved (though how can one improve on the platonic?).
