Short Thought 224 (Downtown Abbey/image)

I’ve been re-watching the Downtown Abbey series, partly in anticipation of the movie in 2019. I remember reading in Esquire that what you thought of it depended on whether you saw yourself as servant or served. There was little doubt in my mind had I been there I’d have been among those cooking, cleaning, and serving.😐 Still, I muse now that if all it took to get treated to a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner – which I could end by placing my cutlery and serviette on the table and wandering off leaving others to clean up – was to deck myself out in a fancy gown, gloves, jewels and tidy hairdo, well, I think I could manage that.
