Old Dominion Tory

Being from Grosse Pointe, Mrs. Tory is very keen on a victory for the Maize and Blue this weekend. Would it not be delightful if the National Championship were one of those splendid Midwest rivalries?

Mr. Peperium

Yes it would be. But just as the attention of the national press was focused upon the showmanship of Lee and Jackson in Virginia while Grant and Sherman were laying the foundations for ultimate victory along the Mississippi, so our modern national press will look upon our laurel-laden Wolverines and say, "Oh yeah, those guys did ok. But what about...(insert another team from a trendier, flashier part of the country here)". Bitter? Maybe. It just seems that no one really wants to give our boys in blue their due.

Mrs. Peperium

I always do, little boy blue...

Mrs. Peperium

Old Dominion Tory, are you coming out this way this summer? I'm in early stages of planning the Patum Peperium Summer Tour.

Card's wife

Why don't you just have The New Criterion come to Detroit?

Mrs. Peperium

Card's wife, you're up?

No one comes to Detroit. Maybe we could convince them to come to Stratford. Dianna Rigg is supposed to be there this year. Plus Stratford is home to WF Buckley's favorite restaurant. Maybe they'll bring the old pothead with them. I'd love to meet him.

Card's wife

Dame Rigg? Fiendish will be there too...

Mrs. Peperium

Card's wife, why don't youguys forget the Grand Hotel and come to Maine? There will be llamas on the island next door and you and I can sneak over there at night and scare them...

Mrs. Peperium

The cottage does not have internet so you and I will have to amuse ourselves in different ways...

Mrs. Peperium

Card's wife, this is Duncan Hunter

http://www.house.gov/hunter/

We need to begin to pay attention to him for '08. He's a very minor player right now but you might enjoy the fact that his son is a Marine....

Card's wife

We could be up for some llama tipping....

Fiendish

llama tipping?
Frosting the end of their hairs? Here were my options for "tip" as a verb at Dictionary.com:
6. to furnish with a tip.
7. to serve as or form the tip of.
8. to mark or adorn the tip of.
9. to remove the tip or stem of (berries or certain fruits or vegetables).
10. to frost the ends of (hair strands): I'm having my hair cut and tipped tomorrow.

Mrs. Peperium

Fiendish, you have confirmed beyond a reasonable doubt that you are indeed a city boy. Llama tipping is like cow tipping. You sneak up behind a sleeping llama and scare it so badly, it falls over.

However, since we love animals here at Patum Peperium, and we are older and more mature than we were in college, perhaps when in Maine we ought to play the city-version of llama tipping. Card's wife, can you dye hair? How about a Henna rinse?

Card's wife

I don't know how but I suppose I can try.

Mrs. Peperium

That's the spirit. I bet my mother still has her old poodle clippers somewhere in the cottage. Can you do a mohawk?

Card's wife

No, I can't do a mohawk.

Mrs. P, thanks for reminding me about Khaki's birthday. Happy Birthday Khaki!

I think Ohio State will do to Michigan what Sitting Bull did to that other man from Michigan, George Custer...

Mrs. Peperium

Custard?

Wg Cdr Sir Basil Seal, KG GCB GBE MC JP

Ah, so you do know him...

mandingo

old pothead?

Forgive me for being naive but is that true about WFB? Is that why they always have those legalize pot ads in the NR?

What next?

Mrs. Peperium

Mandingo, every year NR will have one of its writers make the case for legalized pot. Many people are capable of smoking pot and not having it affect them too much. But millions more aren't. Especially if there is a history of the blood being off in the family.

I've been told by my Valentine - my national radio talk show host Valentine, not Mr. P - that WFBuckely is, for a lack of better term, a pothead.

Mrs. Peperium

Card's wife, boy psycho struck again... I'm never going to make it through puberty....

Card's wife

How is Boy Psycho?

Card's wife

Mrs. P, puberty? Aren't you closer to menopause?

Mrs. Peperium

Menopause is my middle name. When I went to the my doctor for my strep throat - he looked at me and said "You're really sick." I was shocked. I looked at him and said "Really? I just thought it was the early stages of menopause" He almost fell over laughing and said I had a few more years...
