Self-Detourning
At the lunch break, the presence of the wives, who otherwise keep out of the action, is gratefully acknowledged. Opening the back doors and trunks of the Land Rovers and other cars, they break out elaborate dishes for the hungry guns.

In the middle of the grouse-shoot day, guns, beaters, dogs and distaff spectators take time out for a picnic lunch. The spread, packed by the ladies, includes fancy pâtés, cheese and cakes, along with more solid fare. The lady above, ignoring an imploring spaniel, is passing around her fruit cake. Plainer and less high-toned food is brought for the hired beaters, who eat separately after helping the dogs retrieve fallen birds.

This makes me incredibly angry.

It sure packs a wealth of offensiveness into a few sentences. I'm not sure what to be most pissed off at. The "guns" vs. "distaff" opposition is especially rich.

Sure. Come by the office. We can go somewhere close by. Looking forward to it. . .

Me too. I will be swimming and then I'll come by as soon as I'm done. Should be around 1230 or maybe a bit earlier.
