Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! It’s a glorious warm day here in Boston and one can finally believe that spring is here. The sour cherry tree at Stately Babydoll Manor has begun to blossom and in a few months I’ll be hard at work picking and cooking!

Here’s your tip!

Carry a foldable bag with you. You never know when it will come in handy.

I’m very fond of the sort of string bag that Russians call avoska (“perhaps-bag”, as in “perhaps there will be something at the store to buy”). They’re great for holding produce from the farmers’ market and of course I like best the one that my mother knit.

However, I always carry this nylon bag which folds in on itself until it’s about the size of my fist. It was from the swag bag at the Improper Bostonian “Best of 2012” party, hence the Patrón logo. I particularly like this one because it’s waterproof and every now and then I’ve forgotten to pack a plastic bag for wet costume items after one of my water acts.

Also, if you shop in Cambridge, where they’ve just started charging for bags, you’ll always be covered.

M2Like this tip? There are more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
