An Entire Mistake

Fiction ~ short story
Published 16th January 1904
Approx. 1,800 words
(First read 25/12/1994)

Another wafer-thin ~ and ever-so-slightly risqué à la 1904 ~ anecdote about two society hags staying at Aix for their husbands' healths.  The pair of them decide to 'elope' together for a few days to escape their 'disgusting' spouses and delectable French maids.  And lo! when they sneak back for a change of clothes they find ... well, I don't need to spell it out, do I?  Benson stories don't really get any 'liter' than this.  Available in Fine Feathers and Other Stories (1994).
