Silly stereotypes about Wasps and their ilk. By Susan MacTavish Best. Mostly. Inspired by Janet Kornblum (who doesn't have a waspy bone in her).

    Reusing Oyster Jars for Shake ‘n’ Go Cocktails

    imageCan we call this up-cycling?

    Wasps always have a drinkie close at hand. And they love nothing better than the cool breeze of a deserted beach somewhere far away from the chattering masses. Fishers Island will do finely.

    Dear Susan,
    You once wrote me a letter in which you wished me “hpe esdr”. This is phonetically correct if orthographically incorrect but I loved the greeting and hasten to return it.
    Love,
    BB

    Gin & Manure .. within spitting distance of the Merritt Parkway. You’re either into it or not as a Wasp. Sniff! (English dress, obviously .. though what Wasp doesn’t love a bit of Western once on the far side of the Mississippi?).

    Ordering In

    Janet ordered the food. Susan brought the cocktails.

    Wasps do not order in food. 

    Jews do however. And when they do, they order for 14 starving humans, not 3 slightly tipsy adults. (Cocktails provided by Wasp).

    No shades of grey

    There is very little grey in the Wasp world. Black and white. You’re all in or you’re not. No faffing around with uncertainty. That’s left to the lily-livered. Loyal. Not loyal. There’s no in between. (Or as Mummy would say, you’re never sort of pregnant.)

    That doesn’t mean that a Wasp doesn’t enjoy being proven wrong. Indeed, far from it. A Wasp enjoys nothing more than being told why they are wrong when told so by a most articulate person. Drinks on the Wasp!
