I've never understood this whole "ship" thing, I always thought a "ship" was something used to travel via water? I do live in the 18th century though so that may explain my ignorance. Has anyone seen my breeches?

Oh I know what it means. I just don't understand the point of it. Like I said I'm out-dated, I'm that pot of gravy granules at the back of your cupboard from the 1970s that no one has used yet.

Or close the wall up with our English dead?

Dan: the point is to live vicariously through characters, knowing that we will never experience a long-term romantic relationship irl

I tried that with the “lack of a romantic relationship”, which was aimed at Dan, but hey, hopefully he’ll prove me wrong. We can but hope.
