Moreover, I remind you that in past "Ms. Ferron" has more than amply demonstrated her capability of standing her own ground rather well in a verbal jousts, absent the intervention of would-be Galahads, if that were my intention (which it was not), No?
I am old enough to appreciate the Galahads and secure enough that I won't snap if a door is held open for me or if one feels inclined to draw a sword in my defense. Given that you are of a certain age, I understand your explanation and I admit that at first "young lady" did make me blink a few times. However, since I do have it in my signature, please feel free to call me "Donna" and thank you kindly for the compliment.
