The Small Clothes Incident

Dear Corwynne,

I am sorry that it has been so long since I have written, but we have both real world and fantasy world issues crop up. I will of course stick to the fantasy world stuff, because real world is boring.

When you sent me the ebay auction link I found it amusing. Orli must be getting desperate to be selling his underwear on ebay, what could have possessed him? I showed it to Leggs expecting a sad shake of the head, which for him is astonished amusement. But that was not his response. His first response was confusion, which is becoming a common first response for Leggs....anyway he didn't understand why this bizarrely shaped fabric was signed by Orli and up for sale in the palantir box(which is what he calls the computer now). I had to explain that it wasn't just fabic, it was underwear. "Underwear?" Then I remembered your brother's name for it. "Small clothes." I said. Instant understanding from Leggs and even more rare...Rage. Rage on Leggs manifests itself as a slight downturn of the corners of his mouth.. I don't think I have ever seen so much emotion on his face.

This took place several fantasy days ago and much has happend since. An Elven council has been formed to see what, if anything, they can do about this. Orli is not really an Elf, so is he subject to an Elven sense of decorum or is he, as a man, free to do as he pleases. In the end it was decided that as a man he is free to do as he pleases, but that if he expects a warm welcome in the settlemnet, or any Elvish community again, he had better think before pulling out his small clothes again.

Well, that is what has been going on here. I have to finish getting ready for our Thanksgiving travels. Talk to you soon,
Your affectionate friend,

All right now is this a fantasy brother you are refering to or a real brother? I'm just wondering because I find it interesting and amusing that a real brother would use a medieval term to describe underwear. I would expect it from a fantasy brother.

It is in fact her real brother....the one who is morelikely to have a fantasy life of his own, but if he does he isn't telling us about it. Kendrah
