Well, so obviously. I don't even need to explain why Colette would have been good at sexting, do I? She'd be a natural. Colette observed things about people like, "When she raises her eyelids, it's as if she were taking off all her clothes.” She would have been absolutely great at the form. Even just philosophically, she would have had the proper attitude about sexting, having said, "You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm!” That's all a good sext is, anyway, a foolish thing done with enthusiasm. And a great sext? Well, a great sext just might involve some sort of quote from Gigi, particularly one that involves Aunt Alicia going through her jewelry. Not because it's explicitly sexual, that scene of lively, faceted gems being plucked from the folds of velvety boxes, no. Just because it's a really beautifully rendered moment that I've wanted to get lost in since I first read it.
