Another Reason Mom's Not Welcome at the Wives' ClubMaureen Thorson
Cruising round this two-bit, shrimp-shucking town in a baby pink Cadillac, she's a Mary Kay award winner and a commodore's wife and the springboard of a million cast-off doves and it's mandatory, y'all, gonna give you junior officers' wives a much needed lesson in how a lady can wear a scarf to great effect. No kidding. Mom stands, listening to this phone message in her cinder-block kitchen, hands curdling round a dish towel. "My husband's just home from deployment and you want to teach me to tie a scarf?" she mouths to no one. "Oh, hell. The hell you will."
