I didn't give myself a hard time over it, though, but innocently delighted in the thought of the napkins enjoying extra security, UNTIL I unwrapped it, removed the packet of charming napkins that it contained, and realised what the blighters had done to me. Look what was written underneath:
Let me just stand back a bit and let you have a better look at that in context:
What if a guest were to take the last napkin and spot this egregious piffle? Surely they'd think I'm a bit soft in the head. According to trusty old Google, it was St. Augustine who came up with the sentiment, ever alert for an opportunity to preach to napkin-users of yore. Imagine how he would have lost the run of himself if given the broader canvas of tea towel design, or wallpaper.
So what I'm wondering is threefold:
1) Should I discard it?
2) Or paint it?
3) Or go with the flow, wear purple and healing gemstones, and commission a set of Lake Isle of Inisfree soup-bowls?
