Shake a Flannin'- a term from 1882
Why say you're going to fight when you could say you're going to shake a flannin' instead?
Yma's so classy. She's my absolute favorite in this story.
Hmm. I wonder what it is about noon she hates. I'm guessing maybe she suffers from photophobia?
It's something closer to a photo-overload. Yma's eyes are designed for night vision, so daylight simply overwhelms her eyes and makes them hurt. She hates that.
