Re[2]: An Old Earl...


     Ianthe quotes Terafan:
     >The gracious Baron Terafan writes to Earl Daffyd:
>>However if your excellency would like us to start considering you OLD (but not
>>ancient and venerable like Gyrth) WE CAN ACCOMMADATE YOU.
     >Personally, I find references to his Grace, Duke Gyrth as being "old" 
     >and "ancient" distressing.  In a way, I'm his Grandmother, and I'm far 
     >from old.  
     >p.s.:  This does imply a certain paradox because (by the same logic) 
     >Duke Frederick of Holland, is my son, and is widely known to pre-date 
     >dirt.  Yet I am also younger than he.  
     Ah, but Madam, as with all Great Ladies, you shall never be 'old',
     however many generations shall pass....
     (And when you figure two generations a year, we're working pretty hard 
     at it!!)
