Fwd: The Good Napkins

This was too funny not to share:

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 they 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 aunt 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 out laughing.
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 the top.
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!"

Pass this on to your girlfriends who need a laugh or anyone who has a daughter!

Life is too short for drama and petty things,
so kiss slowly, laugh insanely,
love truly and forgive quickly . . .
and for heaven's sake, use the good napkins whenever you can!

Peace, Blessings and Laughs
