“Oh, I don’t know… Lying about, being served on hand and foot, just like dear old mum taught me…” We never think about accents that the characters might bring… or possible back stories… what if Shelley is ROYALTY, and against her parents’ best wishes, the LORD and LADY KUMQUAT, she married this AMERICAN SELF MADE MAN… <<gasp…>> who makes her do all these things against her will? While I appreciate the need to move the “story” along, I think her patience level is ridiculously short… or maybe that indeed is the point, and the plot resolution will be her coming around to the fact that life in the great out-of-doors is actually noble and good… <<yawn>> really?
