to be a heroine...Lesson #3

Lesson #3-Check your fiance's attic before you marry him.

A proposal from a dark, brooding, abrupt man *"with his broad and jetty eyebrows; his square forehead, made squarer by the horizontal sweep of his black hair." may be very appealling, if not flattering but as a heroine it is imperative that you check the attic, If possible before the vowels!

ps. If your too frightened to check the attic, leave your wedding veil in an accessible place, if on your return it is torn...well lets just say you might want to think about leaving the country, I hear India is nice this time of year and they are always looking for missionaries :)

*Jane Eyre, Chapter 13
