Duchesse de Polignac here.
This pandemic you all are going through is just terrible! I don't know about you but I think what I miss the most in times of epidmics (and goodness knows there have been plenty) is the freedom to caruse with, kiss and caress attractive men and charming women. I guess to be more clear, I miss parties and orgies! At some point we must all just take risks and devil be damned! Living a cloistered and austere existence is for monks and nuns, not lively ladies of the court of Versailles!
