Mrs LT is telling me about how her fourteen-year-old daughter was dressed for a recent night out — her outfit featured high heels, eyelashes you could do a ski-jump down, and lots of make-up. There are several other provocative details.
“She looked outstanding!” enthuses Mrs LT, adding that you could have taken her for a girl in her mid-twenties.
“Outstanding”? I might not have reckoned that to be the mot juste.
It sounds, from what Mrs LT says, as though Mr LT is less enthusiastic about how his daughter was dressed.
