THAT is how people interpreted it??? WOW. I really liked Damsels don’t distress.
I know, right? Not only does that interpretation miss the whole point, but it’s grammatically incorrect! (I write for a living – I have an unhealthy issue with grammar. LOL!) But I saw that interpretation, and the confusion over how to read those three words, discussed many times in the various fan groups. It was definitely a *shaking my head* moment for me.
This whole discussion has been fascinating, and is making me realize just how unusual my primary role models (my mom and dad, in the 70s, 80s, and 90s) were to me. My mother continues to amaze me with her strength in her new normal since my dad (and her true love) passed away 7 years ago.
