The Truth Finally Revealed. Brooches are Evil.


Brooches were big for my grandmother's generation.  All the ladies were not complete until they had lipstick on their teeth and some sparkly brooch of flowers or hummingbirds or butterflies or something.


It was the forerunner for a tattoo.  It was the church ladies version of staking her territory.  I mean the butterflies didn't sit with just the butterflies and there were no drive by shootings of someone sporting a bird in flower country but they managed to get the message across with spilled tea and finger sandwich selections available.  

Whole wars were fought with napkins to mouth and pinkies extended.

I know no-one bled out on the polished lino of the church basement from the drive-by of those days but they went home and cried a whole bunch and knew that they were tagged and would never ever be part of the inner sewing circle, or the high high soprano section of the choir, or even those chosen to bake shortbread for the Church Shortbread for the Homeless Drive.

It was life changing.

My grandma left me a bunch of her brooches.


I tried to do the responsible thing and register then as lethal weapons but the police officer failed to see the damage that could be inflicted by the seemingly innocent collection of jewelled owls and teddy bears. 

 I had to buy a safe.

One day the crime channel will get it and there will be a whole series on those whose lives were done in by the brooches, and their meaning and symbolism ... and then maybe, finally, someone will take down those women's church groups and put an end to their shortbread making ways.
