If you’re going to go in the water in the Hamptons, best wear a full wet suit – LuAnn and Bethenny had the right idea! A bit later, we see Jill, Ramona and LuAnn talking about boarding school. I agree that the choice to send a child to boarding school is a deeply personal one. Simon attended a wonderful boarding school in Australia, and his family was near enough to the campus that he was able to live at home – he had the best of both worlds. As is custom in Australia, parents reserve places at their alma mater for their children shortly after birth, and for that reason our boys are both enrolled already. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind that the boys would have the option to attend should we be living in Australia by then, or if we were both to die and the boys adopted by family, etc. It’s uncomfortable to dwell on such plans, but they are necessary contingencies once you become a parent.
I have no idea what it is about me that Ramona feels isn’t real. I don’t seek her out at parties but often feel, when I do talk to her, that her brain isn’t really connected to what is coming out of her mouth. Ramona may well be one of those people who enjoys the sound of her own voice, and to that end comes up with all sorts of non sequiturs. So, I’m not sure what Ramona has against me, but really don’t care. There are more important things to think about.
