You make me smile...so I hope to do the same

525

That is the total number of posts in my reader as of right now. I am sorry that I haven't done much blog hopping this week. It's been a busy week for me and I just want to say THANKS to those of you who stop by regularly even though I don't make it around to see you so regularly. :)

I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and now I leave you with a joke.

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. 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 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!!!'

I'm in the same boat Tisha. We are all so busy right now. I didn't visit anyone yesterday, but managed to get lots done. Loved the joke. I would have cracked up too. :)

Stopping by to say hello and to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

I think once the holidays are over blogworld should get back to normal.

That was worth a good giggle and the photo below of waking with only a tiny piece of the bed all too familiar. May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a new year filled with lots of smiles and giggles.
