First Impressions

Module 2

Long before I am  near enough to begin a conversation with you on the street, in a meeting or at a party, you announce your gender, age, and social class to me. . .  and very possibly give me important information (or misinformation)  as to your occupation, origin, personality, opinions, tastes and current mood.  By the time we meet and converse, we have already spoken to each other in an older and more universal tongue.
