An unexpected gate to the divine
in Boston’s Public Alley 349.
As part of my job, I need to get scientific articles from New Zealand from time to time. The correspondence address on these often includes the term “private bag.” A private bag is what we in the US call a post office (P.O.) box. But I always picture a reticule* or some kind of supportive undergarment. OK, Kiwis, I know I’m a perv.
*reticule=a little purse with a drawstring, used in 18th and 19th century (I think–I don’t have time right now to do research on costume history)
