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

Ah the peaceful weekend, in our getaway retreat, with nothing much to do but admire the garden and sip coffee on the veranda!! Or so I thought when I brought home Crème Brule for my birthday boy, Mr. Clarke. He was thrilled as this is his "flaunt favorite!"

After a leisurely dinner and a bit of red wine, I confess, I was exhausted. So I bade the party boy good night and headed to bed.

Not a half an hour later, I was tucked in and sound asleep. Or so I thought! Suddenly every alarm in our home was SCREAMING!! I leapt out of bed and ran to the staircase, calling for Mr. Clarke!! No answer, so I grabbed the cat and ran down stairs. That is when I saw him. Coming out of the lower level carrying a huge BLOW TORCH!

Mr. Clarke: "Don't worry I just set of the heat alarms. No big deal."

Moi: "No big deal???." I am screaming over the piercing squeal. "What, pray tell are you doing with that BLOW TORCH?"

Mr. Clarke: "Well, I wanted a Crème Brule and it needed to be scorched on the top. You know how I love the crunchy topping."

Now another alarm was going off and the Fire Department was at the front door.


Mr. Clarke: "Terribly sorry Chief. Seems the alarms went off due to my cooking."

Chief: "Look here, why is the heat detector so high and what may I ask are you doing with that BLOW TORCH?"

Mr. Clarke: Looking rather sheepish. "OH, this. I was just browning my Crème Brule."

Chief: Eyes rolling. "This one will go down in the record books! And I should charge you for pulling us out on such a stupid call!!" I could see him glancing my way as he mumbled, "Sorry Madam, we're out of here." As he left, our cat tried to jump on the truck to leave our happy home. Fortunately, this was averted by the large Dalmatian in the front seat.

Moi: As I was running out the door to collect the cat I waved and said, "Thank you Chief, this will not happen again. I assure you!" Of course while using my best Myrna Loy impression.

Mr. Clarke: "Well how am I going to scorch the other Crème Brule?"

Moi: "OMG! Take it outside before you start another San Francisco fire!"

Now I have to admit that I couldn't help laughing as I saw the blow torch start to flame again. Oh well, where are the forks? We might as well have a midnight snack together!


Mummy thinks Mr. Clarke should carry his BLOW TORCH in England to light the Olympian Fire for the games next summer! So creative, that Mummy! And who knows, she might get him the job?
