I had two years ago intended to switch from throwaway paper to cloth napkins. Then a neighbor moved out and gave me a bunch of his stuff including two huge cases of personalized napkins he had made when he ran a wine company. They read, "louis the wine guy" and had a picture of a little man holding grapes. I gave a case to the local natural food store and finally, this week, the case I kept has run out. This makes today the first day of cloth napkins. Mikey and I are both confused. . . "how often does a cloth napkin get used before hitting the wash?" We both recalled today how some meals render a napkin tragic and not reusable without washing while other meals one barely uses a napkin. Does that mean we'd use it again? I have no idea. I guess we'll wing it and see what feels right. Hooray to the end of the throwaway napkin!
