My Funniest Story?
« on: January 17, 2008, 01:41:14 AM »
I just heard the funniest story.

I have a friend who is always bragging about her youngest little 4 year old granddaughter who already knows how to read.

One day, little Natasha was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors under the sink was slightly ajar.

She read one of the boxes in the cabinet and then ran downstairs to ask her mother why she was keeping 'napkins' in the bathroom. Didn't they belong in the kitchen?

Not wanting to burden her with unnecessary facts, she told Tasha that those were for 'special occasions'.

Now fast forward a few months . . . it's Thanksgiving Day, and Tasha's folks are leaving to pick up her uncle and his wife for dinner. Mom had assignments for all 3 kids while they were gone.

Tasha's was to set the table.

When they returned, Uncle Joe came in first and immediately burst into laughter. Next came Aunt Michelle who gasped, then began giggling. Next came Tasha's Dad, who roared with laughter.

Then came the little 4 year old's 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. Even the little tails were tucked in so they didn't hang off the edge of the table.

When asked why she used them, her response sent the all the other adults into further fits of laughter.

"But, Mom, you said they were for 'special occasions'!"


Life is too short for drama & petty things, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.


Have you got a special story to share?

Back in the day when we had the two Key Foods, my then teenage brother was standing outside the 74th Street one when an older guy approached and asked him where he could pick up a few nickel bags.  My innocent brother answered..."you can get bags for free inside Key Food with a small purchase." :2funny:
