In response to Measuring noses, written by Constanza on January 29, 1998 at 21:03:54
] To be sure, my dear old lady once confessed to a story neither so pretty nor so proper, namely, that one of the amusements of her youth was "measuring noses" with some gentlemen, -not an uncommon thing in those days; and, as lips lie below noses, such measurements frequently ended in kisses.
What a lovely expression! It sounds like 'eskimo kisses' to me!
"Lydia...what are you doing!!!!"
"Why, Mama, I'm just measuring Capt Denny's Nose!"
