…well, yeah. I mean, who wouldn’t be able to say that? Remember when Rory Gilmore’s annoying rich boyfriend Logan bought her a Birkin like it wasn’t no thang and she didn’t even know what it was? It changed her life by making her whiny and convincing her to steal a yacht.

Anyway, Courtney says that someone [she won’t say whom] gave her a Birkin when she was 45 and it made her want to read Emily Post cover to cover. As for whether any of Emily Post’s teachings stuck with her, that’s yet to be decided, but good for Courtney for reading a book instead of dropping out of Yale and living in Richard and Emily’s boathouse.

If someone would like to send me a Birkin, I’d be happy to report on how it changed my life. Ahem.
