Death of 'Bright Young Thing'
The Telegraph of London has produced an obit of pure bliss.
Teresa Cuthbertson, who died at 102, was once known as Baby Jungman and created a social stir in the Jazz Age. She and an older sister, the London paper reported, were determined to enjoy life "from the moment they escaped the nursery." Hard to say if her life was all that enjoyable beyond the Roaring '20s, but she sure as hell made the most of that decade.
My favorite anecdote:
"She attended a garden party in the guise of Madame Vorolsky, with two borzois in tow, and on meeting a distinguished general and his wife, told him that she would never forget the night she had spent with him in Paris. The general replied sternly that he had spent only one night in Paris, during the war. 'Zat,' said Teresa, 'was zee night.'
