How the property's ghosts must shudder as dropped aitches
and malapropisms crash to glass floors.
The house is littered with dropped aitches
and the other day, my husband, whose highest praise of the dinner is "very nice" astonished me by saying it was "bostin" - thought I think he got confused with "busting" - which he undoubtedly was.
Leading voice expert Elizabeth Strong gave me the once over, picked up a few hundred of my dropped aitches
from her pine kitchen floor, poked around in my mouth for signs of stray plums, gave my posture the once- over, then hit me like Henry Higgins hit Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.
