Subject: RE: Lyr Add: THE ONE HORSE OPEN SLEIGH (Jingle Bells)
"Of course it was not suitable for children. Especially since the "gentleman" took a lady UNESCORTED into the intimacy of his sleigh."

And the sleigh tipped over, and (presumably) they were stuck together for sometime, after tumbling on top of one another...

Now that I think about it, I have to wonder whether it really was that poor bob tail's fault... reminds me of more modeern gents that take their ladies out for a drive and "accidentally" run out of gas in some secluded spot... ;-)
