Does anybody else find it just a teeny bit odd that a "high school student" should address me as "my dear"?

At one time I studied linguistics so I'm always interested in what is called the register of language. 

"my dear" is usually employed by elderly misogynists who feel that they are "out of their comfort zone", in my experience.

More the Celtic fringe, no. Still, it might have had the desired effect.

Hello Brumbull. Glad to hear on the other thread that you are recovering. I joined the forum during your stay in the Antipodes and wondered who you were and what had happened to you. Hope your garden is OK.
