      THE   GOOD NAPKINS

                

                

                This is too good to not share. I think we are the last generation to know what ‘napkins’ are. THE GOOD NAPKINS  

                ...

                

                

                Ahhhhh

                

                

                The joys of having 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 (her third mistake). 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!!!’
