    THE GOOD NAPKINS... ahhhhh... the joys of having Girls...

    My mother taught me to read when I was four years old (her firstmistake).
    One day, I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors wasajar.

    I read the box in the cabinet. I then asked my mother why she waskeeping 'napkins' in the bathroom. Didn'tthey belong in the kitchen?

    Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts, she told me that thosewere 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 hadassignments 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 camemy father, who roared with laughter.

    Then came Mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each placesetting on the table with a "special occasion" Kotex napkin at each plate, with the fork carefully arranged on top. I had even tucked thelittle tail in so they didn't hang off the edge!!

    My mother asked me why I used these and, of course, my response sent theother adults into further fits of laughter.

    "But, Mom, you said they were for special occasions!!!"

    Isn't it easier to just tell the truth?! ???????? :-D

    That was so innocent, your mother must have not known where to look.
