I know this was posted quite a while back...don't remember seeing it since then. But If I missed it, and it was posted recently .......... Well you'll either laugh, or you won't, I guess.
Special Napkins......and the joys of having little girls.
My mother taught me to read when I was four years old (her
first mistake). One day, I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the
cabinet doors was ajar. I read the box in the cabinet. I
then asked my mother
why she was keeping "napkins" in the bathroom.
Didn't they belong in the kitchen?
Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary
facts, she told me that those were for 'special occasions'
(her second mistake). Now....
Fast forward a few months....It's Thanksgiving Day, and
my folks are leaving to pick up my uncle and his wife for dinner.
Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone.
Mine was to set the table. When they returned, my uncle came in first
and immediately burst into laughter.
Next came his wife who gasped, then began giggling.
Next came my father, who roared with laughter.
Then came Mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each
place setting on the table with a 'special occasion' Kotex napkin
at each plate,with the fork carefully arranged on top. I had even tucked
the little tail in so they didn't hang off the edge!! My mother
asked me why I used these and, of course, my response sent the other
adults into further fits of laughter.
"But, Mom, you said they were for special occasions!!! Isn't this a special occassion?"
