The Good Napkins.....

Got this story from a friend (again, not mine, coz i know how to read at the age of 6, plus I don't celebrate 'Thanksgiving'!), but it's just me, like to share a good laugh with all!

Mums, please tell the children the real thing......they are new generation kids..they need to know

Subject: The good napkins.....

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, his wife came in, gasped and then began giggling. Then my father came in and roared with laughter.

Finally, Mom came in. She 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!!!"

Isn't it easier to just tell the truth???

Pass this on to your girlfriends who need a good laugh. Ah...ah (x 20times)

Life is too short for drama...
