Apologetic and Unapologetic

I have not posted in three weeks, and for that, I whole-heartedly apologize.

Sometimes life gets crazy and I just can't do it all.  Something will inevitably have to give and this time it was posting.  Thankfully, it has been good-crazy, not bad-crazy. 

So that's it for the apologies.  On to something better...

I am of the opinion that there is nothing preppier than a William Hamilton cartoon.  I am in awe of his ability to put any topic into his magic crucible and distill it down to one sharp, witty, perfectly-crafted quip.  His charming characters are unapologetic about their preppy quirks.  It's refreshing.

"We decided to just stay preppy, as though nothing had happened."  
I've always read this one as referring to the changing whims of fashion, but now I wonder if this couple has fallen on hard times.  Regardless, they seem unapologetic to me.

"Darn it, I think up-tight is a fun life style!"  
Little Miss Up-tight correctly feels no need to apologize for what some may consider to be a life style that is full of rules about customs and clothing.  I say it's a liberating life style.  Hooray!

  1. Would you believe that even at 48 I get called 'uptight' by 'cleavage-baring', 'thigh-skimming, short-skirted women' MY OWN AGE? Whatevah! Give me Lily, Brooks Brothers or Talbots any ol' day.

    I think it's a shame that women nowdays are afraid of aging so they go to extremes to hang on to youth (or what they perceive as youth).
