  3. A beautiful picture of how attractive a lady can be without explicitly showing anything but the hip/waist ratio. I get to remind people from time to time that men worth marrying don’t need to see every curve to figure out a lady is beautiful.

  4. More fantastical to my mind. But your heading might have been wryly sarcastic.

      It was a sort of joke. It followed this anecdote I shared on Facebook recently:

      I just saw someone using the “she looks like a librarian” line.
      That reminds me of a conversation I once had with a female subordinate at work:
      FS: She looks like a librarian.
      Me: What do you mean?
      FS: Oh, you know, glasses, hair in a bun, dowdy.
      Me: Really? My wife is a librarian.

      My wife was indeed a librarian but pretty cute:

      • Ha ha well well done then. And dowdy needn’t be a criticism of a naturally beautiful woman who concerns herself more with matters of intellect over superficiality.

        Actually, I know what they mean. Even when she was young and shapely, she used to dress modestly. I suppose she is a bit like the stereotypical librarian in that sense.
