I don’t know. Maybe it was the girl who wore them. I’m sure that she made them or that she liked to make them. Who knows? I doubt that they were invented by a flapper princess.
Is the word “flapper” used a lot in movies? Flannys, to be sure. Flutterys are flapper princesses. It can be hard to tell the difference. I’ve seen a movie with two characters trying to get the best deal. One is very flappity, the other is very flappy. And the best way to distinguish them is to look at their dresses. If you look at one, you know it’s the flapper in a skirt. If you look at both, you know they are the same person. You can even use “the flapper” in a sentence, like if an old man and a young man are arguing. The young man says, “The old man was a flapper.” “Yeah, well, the guy was also a flapper, but maybe not.”
What do I do with my Flapper Princess? Well, she deserves a place in history. My daughters grew up with her, and they love her more than I do.

It was, from beginning to end, a glorious afternoon on the first day of the season.
The Reds beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Sunday afternoon to improve to 9-1. The only blemish on their record came in the bottom of the eighth when the Reds ran into a 6-4 deficit. Rookie reliever Tyler Clippard came in to relieve the struggling Clippard gave up four runs, six hits, and eight walks in 2.2 innings. He was ejected by second base umpire Steve Clevenger after the game.
Clippard is only the second pitcher to be ejected by Clevenger. The first to lose their temper was the Phillies’ Mike Mussina. Mussina was ejected for punching Cubs starter Tim Wakefield after a game on March 23, 1987.
Museina lost his temper, according to his manager, and punched a manager in the face. I guess there are a few things you can expect from a manager who’s been fired eight times.
On the first day of the season, Mike Tomlin
