The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

NO Husbands!

"NO HUSBANDS"

Well, the husbands like to go out and play golf together, try some sport fishing, race their sail boats or play tennis with one another. Then there are the court side seats at the Lakers games that they just have to go to with their pals. All known as male bonding.

What is a girl to do for entertainment? Shopping, talk on the phone, or take home work from the office to do? This is not entertainment. Yes, we too can we play golf or tennis, enjoy a day sailing or perish the thought of a weekend of sport fishing? A small aside here: have you ever seen those sleeping conditions on one of those boats that they are spending 1,000's of dollars a day to rent ! NO way will we do that! Only sport fishing I'm planning is on my friend's 80' boat that they take to Baja.

But getting back to our plans for entertainment and a little bonding for ourselves. We decided on a girls' night out together. No we were not going to some "questionable" club, but there would be no husbands, no children, and no specified time to go home! Just a small group of the Flaunt Fab Forty getting together.

We show up at LB's around 7:30 PM. She had put out a spread of delicious little tapas for all to share. The bar was ready, replete with red and white wine glasses, high ball and martinis glasses too. The ice bucket was full and we were giving our orders. Help thy self!

As we sat around in the man cave, since her husband had retired to his library, we had the sound system on enjoying the music and sharing some girl stories. One thing leads to the next and that question of age came up. Why do women always have to know one another's age? Can you imagine men asking one another ages? I don't think so. But I digress.

Now my dear Mother had told me a story, years ago, that has always remained in my mind. When she was very young she was overheard by her Grand Maw-Maw telling another friend that her birthday was coming up. Her Grandmother being very proper takes her aside later and says this to her; "Darling, I want you to remember that in a few years you should not be telling anyone your age. They will remember that and then be doing the math later. A woman never tells her age after 18." (Today I would say 21)

So as the age question was passed to me, I smiled and said, "Now thank you so much and you have a nice day too." The group roared with laughter and that was that! Of course you can always add 15 to 20 years and they will think you look absolutely marvelous and hopefully realize you are kidding! Small point here: if you do look older than your age don't use that line! I prefer the first response since it will put the question to rest immediately.

But getting back to our little party. Just so you don't think we sat around all night and talked. NO! LB had gotten out a Karaoke machine that her family loves to use at parties. The next thing you know we spent 2 hours singing some of our favorites. Trust me; no one will be auditioning for American Idol soon!

Everyone did get a good laugh out of these "auditions" though and I was even told I could do phone sex. Yes, I heard you gasp here. Believe me that was a joke because I was whispering into the microphone something about the man needs a dawg and LB took that one step further and said, "You could do phone sex with that voice." Of course that got the group into hysterics!

Shortly thereafter LB brings out a tambourine. Now it started to look like a flash back to American Bandstand, Soul Train or some video on MTV because the dancing started too! Thank God no one took pictures! In fact that was a rule at the very beginning! Can you see this on the society page. NOT!

Then LB brings out the worst set of shoes you have ever seen in your life. The only way to describe them was "Hooker Heels." Five inches high and total plastic. Of course these were a joke and everyone had to try them on. Need I paint the picture any further? We were laughing so hard we were crying!

Now I'm sure you all thought we had been imbibing too much? Have to tell you that the group was actually sober but had taken on the attitude of 14 year olds. We all left at 1 AM and it took me a day to recuperate. Women do bond in the funniest way!

Make a play date with your girl friends,

Alexandra
