For those of you who have never heard of Muffy Sue Buffington, let me elaborate…About 15 or so years ago my brother wrote for his college newspaper. In his column he introduced a character named Muffy Sue Buffington. We all knew Muffy Sue, she was the girl working towards her MRS. degree. She had hair like the Breck Girls and if she smoked, she did it sittin' down. Double name and double trouble during Wednesday night chapter at the Sorority house. The original multi-tasker.
Today you can find Muffy Sue at the local Piggly Wiggly, little league game or elementary school parking lot. She is dressed in her tennis outfit and gabbing about how Clair Rosenberger is not good enough for Junior League because of last weeks “whisky shot” incident at Supper Club. Poor Clair.
Do not get me wrong; today’s Muffy does not always have that much time on her hands. Watch out for the Volvo Station Wagon with three kids in the back seat and high heels in the front. She holds Starbucks in left hand and cell phone in right. Multi-tasking takes on a whole new meaning. Muffy can bring home the bacon and cook it too.
I think there is a little bit of Muffy Sue in most girls from the South, whether we what to admit it or not. I myself love a good book club and local ladies group.
So here’s to the Muffy Sue Buffington in all us girls. If you hang out at the Pig or run laps in the boardroom, please invite me to Supper Club I won’t forget the Jack Daniels.
