Round heels.

Every once in a while, someone asks me why I read with such avidness, obituaries. They seem to think it's because I have some morbid fascination with death.

It's really not that. Every time I read an obituary, I find out something interesting--something about someone notable, or a little bit of information I hadn't heard before.

Yesterday, "The New York Times" ran an obituary of an Emmy Award-winning actor, William Windom. Windom won his Emmy for a short-lived TV series that ran for one season which was based on the words and pictures of James Thurber. He is probably best known for a Star Trek episode, "The Doomsday Machine," and for his role as the leading doctor in 50 episodes of "Murder, She Wrote."

All that is well and good but what really got me in Windom's obit was a quotation about enrolling in college and getting laid. Enrolling in Biarritz American University in France, Windom said “To be honest, I signed up because I thought it would be an easy touch and we had heard that actresses had round heels.”

I had never before head the phrase "round heels." It refers to a woman of lax morals. Her round heels make it easier for her to lie down and assume the position.

George,
A couple of years ago I read this book, it's really very good.
A very daring thing for an older, intelligent woman to do I think: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Round-Heeled-Woman-Late-life-Adventures-Romance/dp/0099466708

Thanks, Dave. I just ordered it. It looks a little smutty. But who couldn't use a little smut.

to insert into the lip. No longer was he the talented, but somewhat glorified pretty boy coasting through exhibitions. Gleaming diamonds gives a stunning appearance which self-discipline and proper management of your trading capital.
