“Clicking the heels as one kisses her hand is out-of-period.”
This phrase caught my attention:"DO NOT run around grabbing any lady's hand, and kissing it, at random. They might just eviscerate you on the spot..."I had to look up "eviscerate"...it means to disembowel. Yikes!
I had no idea Len was so short, although that picture suggests there are several advantages to being so.
Welcome Richard. Perhaps Len is kneeling as suggested in one of the several methods of hand-kissing, all in an effort to express, "I am overwhelmed by your beauty." Or maybe, as I'm sure you're suggesting, it's just so he can be at eye-level with her chest!
