Old Lady Case

The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated.

What is considered trash or quality in the South has nothing to do with money. Some of the best families around here haven’t had money for generations. The emphasis is on breeding and manners. No amount of money can make you quality if you don’t act like quality. For instance, good Southern belles don’t place much importance on paying $400 to buy a pocketbook that’s got some Italian designer’s initials all over it. In the South, grandmother’s monogrammed napkin rings are much more important than Gucci’s monogrammed luggage. To think otherwise is just considered tacky. And around here, nothing is more tacky than being tacky.
