Salt and Pepper

Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful, wonderful moms. Brand new moms (Heather, Amy), new moms-to-be (Chrissy) and us old hats.

On the way home from my Mother's Day dinner tonight with the family, I don't know how we got on the subject, but David asked "Now what was it that your mom used to take from restaurants?"

She'd totally kill me...if she had internet.

Mom would take salt and pepper shakers from restaurants, no matter what style of restaurant. Mostly though, it was fast food places; Burger King, McDonald's or KFC. Mom would open the purse and plop those shakers in them. We were poor, what can I say. It used to embarrass me to no end.

Jake is cracking up in the back seat of the car.

"Oh, and napkins," I said. She would open the napkin dispensers and take a huge chunk of napkins. *poof* in her purse. It's a miracle she never got caught. Again, poor.

"So at the dinner table you were wiping with Burger King napkins?" asks Jake. I nod, he cracks up.

I love you mom and your old crazy ways.
