First Off....

....I'd like to say that as soon as I can figure out which 10 people I'd like to honor with the blogger award that I have in my sidebar, I'll be posting it.

Until then, please enjoy this post :)


The good napkins, 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. When they returned, my uncle came in first and immediately burst into laughter. Next came his wife who gasped, then began giggling. Followed by 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!!!"


  1. Everyone must have been in a good mood for the rest of the day, so... no harm done! :-) Am I right or am I right?

  2. When you're right, you're definitely right Minka :D

  3. I've written what I promised... come over and have a look... :)

  4. Ho ho ha ha hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!! You are so funny. What a great story. I wish I did cool things like that when I was little. I put you in a Sunday Sillies, just a day late is all.

  5. I'm on my way Minka!

    Thank you Etta, once I'm done over at Minka's I'll come and check it out!

  6. I needed the laugh that I got from reading this post!
    This is something that my middle child would totally do, as she never forgets anything that I tell her, which always has a way of backfiring in my face.
    Thanks for the laugh. I now have a mental picture of a holiday table set with those beautiful kotex napkins!

  7. lol. thats pretty funny.

    i had some bad experiences with those as a young child myself. i thought they were giant bandaids of some sort. my mom never really told me otherwise, she just let me make a fool of myself continually.


  8. Ohhhhh gosh, that is hilarious!! Kids take everything so literally, you seriously have to watch what you say. Hee hee.

    Super cute blog! I'm so glad I stopped by! :-)

  9. You're most welcome Tracy, just remember to never tell your middle child that they're for special occassions! :D

    Blunt, parents certainly have a way of enjoying their childrens moments of foolishness, don't they? I know when my daughter is making a fool of herself, I enjoy it immensly. Granted, I make sure she knows what she's doing so she doesn't do it again, but I do enjoy it while it's occurring :D

    Thank you Cora, I'm glad you stopped by as well!

    Cora and Tracy, welcome to the funny side of my blogland home! I'm glad you both have enjoyed it so far :)


I've decided to use comment moderation simply because that way, I never miss a new comment on my posts. I'm really quite forgetful and tend to not remember how many comments had been in each post the last time I looked, so please bare with me and my memory lapses :)
