A Note on Notes

While discussing the preparations for Monday’s school lunch, my daughter decided to stand up for something she believed in. Very tactfully she told me that my writing, I love you and have a great day at school type of notes on her napkins was inappropriate. When she then said that they embarrassed her I was crushed, until she continued to say that she likes to read them aloud to her friends but she is supposed to wipe her mouth with the napkin and can’t because there is writing on it. Not just criticizing but offering a solution, she requested if I would please write her notes on post-its and leave the napkin alone. Feeling suitably told off, I shall take note of her reasonable request, and in the future it’s a Post-It and a napkin.
