Blubbering on about fashion

Fear not Blair Greenberg (C8): “My friend Jeffrey was no celebrity, and he died peacefully in his sleep,” claims Kenneth Smith of Orange. “Though his passengers were all screaming.”

“While celebrities may well die peacefully in their sleep, every time someone wants to make me into a celebrity I’ve declined, as their lives are so complex,” reckons Michael Payne of West Pymble.

Noted North Turramurra esthete, Malcolm McEwen noticed that the cover photo of Gazman’s spring 2023 catalogue features a new item called a Prince of Whales Check Sports Jacket. “It reminded me of a Prince of Wales checked suit I owned in the ’80s, so I bought one. But it begs the question: just who do they think the Prince of Whales is?” Not sure, but he’s unlikely to be a member of the Japanese royal family.

“Wolf Kempa (C8) experienced huge hail in front of St Patrick’s Church,” notes Richard Payne of Urangan (Qld). “Must have been a Hail Mary!”

Ray Alexander of Moss Vale is just the latest contributor to recall offending bar staff (C8): “Settling in for a quiet drink in an Inverness hotel, I ordered three whiskys and water and a whisky and milk, my wife’s favourite tipple. ‘Mulk!’ the barmaid exclaimed in a Scottish burr so loud it stirred the entire gathering. Not only that, but she refused to contaminate her country’s famous liquor with a product from the dairy. A local who had all but fallen from his stool at the bar with laughter finally obliged by going behind the bar to perform the deed in the spirit of international relations.”

Hindrance with a capital haitch! (C8). Sue Martin’s mourning for ‘aitch’ has a couple of Colins offering full support, and perhaps some clarification. Colin Thornton of Federal says, “When I first came to Australia thirty years ago and questioned the common use of ‘haitch’, I was told it was an indication that the person using it was Catholic. I tested this hypothesis a few times, and it worked.” Colin Taylor-Evans of Lane Cove blames it on “a typo in the original ye olde Roman Character Pronunciation Guide.”

“You are absolutely not the only one who grieves for ‘aitch’, Sue,” offers Claire Edmonds of Floraville. “I don’t think our dear departed Queen would have ever uttered ‘haitch’ in her lifetime of upholding the Queen’s English.” Except maybe when calling Harry in for dinner.
