then i remembered what day i would be presenting on-- VALENTINE'S DAY!! to make it a lovely and inviting day for the class, the only thing i could think of talking about was love and courtship in the Victorian era. It really was a romantic period, disregarding the strict rules of courtship and marriage laws (DISAPPROVAL THERE) and taking into consideration the idea of love and some of the cute, secret customs.
i'm sure the class will really find these tidbits on old-fashioned love adorable or just interesting, possibly WTF. i think they're innocent, and protective-- just people looking out for themselves and making sure that they do meet that right someone no matter how much or how little they can display of their affections... if it IS the one, does it matter? something will give, it's fate.
