I read this the other day and it got me thinking.
Do people really still use napkins in this day and age? Or is everyone else just like us, where they scramble to find some napkins when guests come over for dinner and thus perpetuate the myth that every good household uses them on a regular basis?
We didn't own any napkins (paper or cloth) until my family came into town for a visit just after Christmas two months ago. Before that, when guests came over to eat, we tore paper towels in half. Yes, it's true.
(Just in case there are still people out there who use napkins, and they're wondering what I use instead, the answer is nothing. We just eat neatly, I guess. I have noticed that whenever we go to someone's house and have napkins, I end up throwing them in the trash at the end of the meal, crisp and unused.)
So, do you use napkins? If not, feel free to say so. This is a welcome and loving environment. Also, I am the owner of this blog and I don't use them, so at least you're not alone.
