I’ve been known to fold napkins many times when I’ve needed a handy excuse. I’ve even used a napkin for a thank-you-card to thank my co-workers, but I’m sure the expression “napkin for thanksgiving” isn’t going to be on the menu for any of my Thanksgiving turkeys.
Thanksgiving is a huge holiday, so you may think you can get away with not folding a napkin, but I have yet to have any co-workers thank me for a napkin. However, if you have co-workers that are also you friends, it’s perfectly reasonable to ask them to get one of those for you. It’s also a great way to express gratitude for a job well done.
For anyone wondering if I’m on crack, I just got home from work and had my lunch. I think I’m going to have a sandwich, some turkey, and some cranberry sauce, then I’m going to put my napkin in the hamper. I don’t know about you, but that sounds perfectly fine.
That’s right, its a napkin you can fold just about anywhere. I do it a lot more often than I should though, because I really enjoy folding it at home. As long as it’s folded the perfect way, you can do it anywhere, its just a matter of style. And if you’re going to use a napkin, make sure it’s really a napkin.
The fact that you can fold a napkin is one of the most important and most misunderstood things about napkins. The reason is because the way we fold them is so wrong. When we fold them, we make them look like someone is folding something. But that’s not what we do. We use a sharpie.
I have a tendency to fold my napkins at home, mostly for the sake of it, but I think it does cause a different problem. A napkin is just a bunch of tiny little folds, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But it’s not just the little folds of a napkin that cause problems. When you fold a napkin, you also fold the napkin in quarters.
I do that all the time when I am folding napkins. And when I fold my napkin to make it look like someone else is folding it, I’m not folding it any smaller. It looks so much better this way.
Its not just the folds of a napkin that cause problems, it’s also the way we fold our napkins. We fold our napkin according to the rule that says, “the longer the napkin, the more people fold it.” That is a rule that works for most napkins but not for the ones we fold for Thanksgiving.
This is because the longer the napkin, the longer the paper that is on top of it and the thicker it is. So we are actually folding a piece of paper that is several times thicker than the napkin itself. This is not a problem for us unless we are folding the napkin too high (which is rare). But if we are folding it too low, we are folding our napkin into a smaller rectangle, which then becomes a square.
The fact is that thanksgiving is a season and that means that we are folding a piece of paper that will be used on a daily basis throughout the year. For most people, the smaller the napkin the better. But if you are folding a bigger paper for holiday use, don’t you think you can use the smaller napkin? No, you can’t.
