Sleeping in the Snow with Bears

Marie Antoinette liked to dress up like a milk-maid all breasts and bodices and buckets to spend a day at the royal country estate and pretend to milk cows that had been perfumed and powdered for her (and presumably debriefed afterward) and frolic with the happy, dancing peasants.

My friend, Katy, knitting and jollying away at would say, "Don't do it! It's a trap!"
