Ah, but what, when you get down to it, do we really mean by smitten. I mean, It's all really open to interpretation.
Jo could *say* she smote us, but in 'reality' what she really did was Thought she smote us, thus, in the reality created by her impression, her senses, her 'input' shall we say, then she has indeed 'smote' us. Howeever in what we arts student's reluctantly call 'real' reality or 'true' space, what has happened is that we have, in fact, NOT been smote.
Something to think about really.
