Hah! I’d forgotten all about this one. Bless her. She’s a devil woman.

Question is, was I writing this from the point of view of ‘this is Miss Jane’s last stand’ or ‘this is the moment the polite violence began’.

Only one woman holds the answer.

I’m going to guess this was the tipping point.

And look, it’s way back in 2005.  Who knew she got off to such an early, politely violent start?

When did 8 years happen?

Yes, I know. It’s 2014. I’ll count my years the way I like them.

Now I’m curious to see the actual first. Date and content…
