Governess's Dilemma by CQ on 2009-11-03

I see two high-heeled classic women's shoes strung together and turned upside down with those things you put on the ends of the bones that stick out of roasts, like you would see in your grandmother's Betty Crocker cookbook. all this is being served in a dish. Reminds me of Jane Eyre, the story of a poor girl with no rich or kind family relations, so the only descent kind of work she can get is taking on other peoples children, which of course is still very much like the situation of the nanny's of today. Definitely bound and served.
