in consequence of the missive, Someone who liked to read over physical activities, penned by Ramya
What I mean is that one can be "tomboyish" not only in physical activity, and without even physical activity. Yes I was a nerd, but nerd as a boy-nerd, not as a girl-nerd, sorry for not expressing well what I mean. Adressing people like a boy, etc. In her walk to Netherfield, her being so decided was "boyish" more than the walk itself, that, as she said, was a mere three miles. More feminine Regency ladies would have been perfectly able to walk three miles and back, but would have fancied unequal and thought it so improper as to prevent them definitely from going.
