18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Wednesday, November 5, 1913: If ever a girl heard high-tone language, I heard some this afternoon.
This doesn’t happen very often, but this afternoon I came to earth with a thud. Was positive there were no spectators, but afterwards learned that I had been mistaken.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Who said the high-tone words? . . . and what did he/she say?
This is a relatively long diary entry for Grandma. Are the two paragraphs both referring to high-tone language? . . . or is the second paragraph about an actual fall?
