I had an aunt whom I assumed may have been born an old lady. The little niece recalls a wrinkled nose more than a smile. I recall giggling after a burp and being told “Not prudent for a young lady.” Wonder how she knew? Anyway, I did not know what the word meant, but but but . . I had heard of prudes and one more thing!
Stand in front of a mirror and say PRUDENT and imagine you’re still a 5 year old. Tell me! DOESN’T IT MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK FUNNY?
