Lovely Ladies

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Salon at the Rue des Moulins, 1894

Hadassah started it. She used the word in a status update and it got me thinking…

Gee, I haven’t heard that word in an awfully long time. And I’m so impressed at the ease with which someone used it in daily conversation.

And right then and there, I vowed to find a way to slip it into a conversation by nightfall.

Which explains the following statement that flew out of these holy lips:

“So at this huge summit you’ll be attending, will you and your clients by any chance be visiting a bordello?”

It really doesn’t take much for my yetzer to run amuck.

    hey hey – we need context here for my comment. Seriously, otherwise what might people think? I believe I was at the library and tweeted / FBd something about the couple near to me acting inappropriately. I believe it went something like this “This is a library, not a bordello. Get a room”. Of course I could have used other words, but I love the word bordello. it’s so old-worldish. SO, to whom did you ask this question??

    This brings to mind the old HUC cheer (probably dating from the 1920s, when the college actually fielded a basketball team): Yetzer…Yetzer…Rah! Rah! Rah!

    You might be surprised what you can learn in a bordello. It is an education you can’t find anywhere else, or so I have heard. Certainly wouldn’t know from experience.
