(Amem...clearing throat, in order to say the difficult...) By "any
woman," perhaps, over the internet (in fact, very public celtic-l) a woman
*might* mean (*smile*ing rather often) that her toes are curling...in
hopes of a more private conversation, and, well, also hoping that the
rest of us would sort of go away...
Gee, Bette, do you think Melissa was trying (ahem) to tell me something?
Brian, who was once told that curling toes was a sure sign of (ahem) being
experienced by the woman.
