HOYDEN? Now there's a word we don't see very often.

/Seen with TROLLOP, HUSSY, and TART waiting for the geezer bus.

Mimi's comment led me to a Regency favorite from back in the day: http://www.amazon.com/Memoirs-Hoyden-Joan-Smith/dp/0449213293#

Obviously hat one's no swamp hoyden, Deb.

Deb said...

Yeah, iirc, it's a very "tame" book.

Bill Crider said...

I suspect that SWAMP HOYDEN is mighty tame, too, by today's standards.

As Groucho might have said, "I never hoyden such a thing!"

Well, that lowered the level.
