    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

    When they returned, my uncle came in first and immediately burst into
    laughter. Next, in came my father, who roared with laughter.
    Then in came Mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each
    place setting on the table with a "special occasion" 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 it easier to just tell the truth and be careful who you ask to
    set the table for you!
