Yes, it’s that time of year again. With Memorial Day just over, you should consider joining or renewing your annual membership with the Preppy Anti-Defamation League (PADL). Even though we’re in the middle of a pandemic, summer is still go-to-hell season, a time when Nantucket Reds, madras patchwork plaid, and other clothes of blinding primary colors will be worn to the consternation of Zoom meeting attendees across the country. However, those of you venturing outside with your seersucker masks and radiant ensembles shouldn’t have any trouble with social distancing. The general public will go out of their way to avoid your brilliance, but those caught by surprise may complain about retina damage due to the intensity of your clothing. You will need proper support. Other than a trust fund, your PADL membership is the best support mummy and daddy can give. Meet this year’s PADL officers, all just re-elected by mail-in ballot (L to R): John J. “Jake” Balderdash, III (President), Muffy Armitage Balderdash (Secretary), and John J. “Skip” Balderdash, IV (Vice-President).
