The 03/16/13 Joy Jar

15 Mar

There are certain things one notices if they aren’t around when you need them. Kleenex is something one misses if they don’t have it readily available. Toliet paper is another item one wants to have available. Then, there is the napkin which is useful for so many purposes. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the napkin.

Never trust the food in a restaurant on top of the tallest building in town that spends a lot of time folding napkins.”
Andy Rooney

Never allow butter, soup or other food to remain on your whiskers. Use the napkin frequently.”
‘Hill’s Manual of Social and Business Forms: Etiquette of the Table’ (1880)

Do not drink more than two or three times during the meal, and wipe your lips with a napkin after each sip, especially if a common drinking-cup is used.”
Desiderius Erasmus (1466? – 1536)

Cesar Romero would attend the opening of a napkin.”                                         Jim Backus quotes (American Actor, 19131989)

At the dinner table, if you can’t think of anything to say, sit quietly. Don’t throw rolls, or chew on your napkin.                                                                    Mason Cooley
