Today is a day for adventure. Where can adventure be found, you ask? Why, adventure can be found on the open road....

But first, more from Rules of Etiquette and Home Culture; or, What to Do and How to Do It. This should be of particular interest to Chris, ensconsed as he is in the world of gender theory.


To every well-bred man and woman physical education is indespensable. It is the duty of a gentleman to know how to ride, to shoot, to fence, to box, to swim, to row, and to dance. He should be graceful. If attacked by ruffians, a man should be able to defend himself, and also to defend women from their insults. Dancing, skating, swimming, archery, games of lawn tennis, riding and driving, croquet, all aid in developing and strengthening the muscles, and should be practiced by ladies. The better the physical training, the more self-possessed and graceful she will be. Open-air exercise is essential to good health and a perfect physical development.
