    Use the good napkins

    (Are we the last generation to know what 'napkins' are?)

    USE THE GOOD NAPKINS

    The joys of having Girls...

    My mother was teaching the some basic reading
    skills before I was old enough for school, probably 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
    years before I would need to know,
    she told me that those 'napkins' 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 tails 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!!!'
