"No use sacrificing Bermuda vacation money for tuition for a kid who's going to run off and join a modern dance truope. Nor does the Prep parents' responsibility stop with simply ensuring their children's acceptance at a school: They've got to make certain that once the progeny are enrolled, they're not going to lock themselves in the computer lab for the whole four years and miss out on house party invitations, 'after-hours alcoholic sprees,' and the joy of shopping for madras."
Here is my Mommy at The Ocean City Yacht Club this summer! She smokes with a cigarette filter and is very eccentric! We love her and we all have fun stories to share about our relatives. Do feel free to share some with me!
TOPH "When you spend all your time with your family and other Prep families at the beach, on the slopes, at the country club, and at innumerable family reunions; when all your birthday and Christmas presents are either monogrammed or have Izod labels, it's unlikely that you will have the normal childhood aspirations of becoming a fireman or a nurse."****
Preppy challenge complete--eccentric parents who instilled preppiness in me--skiing, sailing, monograms, needlepoint, etiquette school, debutante dancing class. (just to name a few) Check! I passed with flying colors. And I"m only on page 18!!
Preppying through Wednesday!!!
****these are direct quotes from The Official Preppy Handbook. I think being a nurse or fireman can be preppy too.
