Many years ago when Duchess Rowan came up to chat with me at an 
Interkingdom event, she stopped mid sentence and said, "Stop that!"  
"Huh?" (says I, oblivious as always), "There! Stop that!  What are 
you afraid of?!"   Apparently I had been backing away from her the 
entire conversation, and she was having to "chase" me down.  I think 
she finally grabbed the front of my tunic to hold me in place. :-)

I guess now I have to be afraid of myself.  Yikes!
