      An older man asking a teenager(?) to accompany him on a trip abroad even back then would have been a little wink wink nudge nudge, no?

      I think Briggs meant it innocently enough, but I’ve been on enough tours of rich people museum homes where a very common origin story is

      – rich person lived in the home with their somewhat younger “lifelong companion”
      – the rich person passed away
      – the companion also did some quarter to half century later
      – the home then passed into semi-public use

      (funny enough, this is also close to the origin story of the CIA Hq in Northern Virginia)Report
