The notion of the oblivious chaperon occurs to me. It seems an ideal arrangement, the duties of that functionary being carried by the expedient of her presence only and not by the scandalous knowledge, real or imagined, of the sins of her charge.

Shouldn't it be "charges?"

Thank you for your comment.

It is possible that a chaperon may have only one charge. This is the simplest case and the one, I think, in which the likelihood of the chaperon being unaware of her function be greatest.

I'd be a blackguard and a cad, if I weren't so ineffectual. The less said "About Me", the better.
