                           From the Library of Congress, 1920.

                      What Will Mrs. Thompson Say?

visitors can't see pics , please register or login


1. Should the boy's name make any difference?
2. Should Blue Eyes stay home, or go to places without him?  (While Mrs. T. will address this question, she won't really answer it.  There are clues in the letter that might help you in guessing what Mrs. Thompson will be saying in regards to question number 2.)

The correct answers are worth 20 points each. 

BLUE EYES
1-Should a last name make any difference? NO.
2-Should you go places and have a good time with him? YES. You are a young 16 year old lady. You are too young and he is too young to make a commitment to one person. It is good for you to have outside interest and fun times. Someone in your family must be playing a fiddle or a bodhran.
Staying at home is not an act of respect to this fellow. That is just a stupid thing to do at your age. It is ok to go out with your family and girl friends for amusement.  Enjoy your life before you become engaged.

1.  While most would be ok, it sounds like you are going nuts over his name.  If you marry the poor lad, you'll be going bat shit crazy over his name.  So move on to some else.
2.  Clearly you don't like being around him because of his name.  Time for you to move on to a Connor.

I can't tell which one is scowling...
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

1. No, his name shouldn't make a difference but if you're asking then it does.
2. Do not stay home for his sake. That's just silly. Go have fun.

Dear Blue Eyes,

No dear, his name shouldn't matter to you especially if you are fond of him. You may even love his name one day. Who knows.  As for staying home when you would rather be out because of him, I recommend you drop that nonsensical little practice immediately.

Phooey,  slamming gets old.   Independence is fine.   Pleasing and flattery are ok.  Just don't lay there, that's the answer
