Around my house we have Tissue, both facial and toilet! Okay even in church, since we have folks who go to the altar and some cry; RIGHT THERE is a box of ‘facial tissue!’ Now a roll of good quality toilet tissue would do the same job, but would not be appreciated.
I carry a handkerchief. I had to laugh at the situations Victor mentioned in his blog concerning movies. When a lady cries, the male actor will always hand her a freshly washed and ironed handkerchief (It is never a used one!); BUT she never returns it.
There was a time you ladies carried a handkerchief, why did you quit? Now you must carry a tissue in your purse and I would bet (like our motor home) you have some boxes of tissues sitting around.
What ever happened to the dainty ‘handkerchief’ a lady carried? (Don't y'all want to save the planet?) ;-)
Whether it meant anything or not, my 7th grade teacher recommended every one carry a handkerchief. Use it to sneeze and to blow your nose in. BUT added, advise your mama to wash all the family handkerchiefs separate from the rest of the clothes to prevent spreading ‘germs.’ Now my mama had enough to do on Monday’s wash days with coloreds and whites without running an extra load thru the machine and the wringer, so I kept my mouth shut. I figured the germs would be drowned, or squeezed to death in the wringers.
BUT someone has been great in sales ads at replacing the versatile ‘hanky’ with a flimsy disposable tissue. LOL
BESIDES all those actresses should have had their own hanky instead of stealing the leading man’s.
After reading this, my sweetheart will tell me, it is none of my business where she blows her nose as long as she doesn’t use my hanky!
Last word before I get hit! (I still think a girl should have a hanky!)
PSa: Do you ever leave a tissue in your pocket and wash it with the clothes? Ouch!
