With Friends Like This . . .

What does it mean when a friend gifts you with toilet paper and a napkin? Do you think there's a hidden message there somewhere?

As I mentioned in last night's post, Gran and I got together for lunch today--she picked me up ('cause I'm an easy pick up) and, quite appropriately, we hung out at The Corner. Yep, it's a bar--and restaurant.


And it's good food. If you know Sacramento but don't know The Corner, it's where the Shakey's used to be on J Street near Elvas. And if you go there, order the Corner Bird. Yum!

So, anyway, once we were seated, Gran presented me with a bag, and inside the bag was tissue-wrapped Halloween toilet paper and a cross-stitched napkin or hand towel. See?


Isn't the cross-stitched black cat cute? Here's what's really funny, though: These are things she bought for me at thrift stores! And you know what? I bought something for her at the thrift store the other day too, but I was "saving" it for a special occasion!

I don't know why, but there's something really fun about buying silly (and cheap!) things for friends at thrift stores. I just have one question, though: Should one wait until Halloween WEEK to put out the holiday toilet paper or can it be put out earlier in the season? After all, I don't want to seem tacky.

I would wait until October before putting out the t.p. Any earlier might be a bit tacky LOL

If you can't buy your BFF toilet paper, what can you buy them? You two have way too much fun!!!!!!!! :-)

Wait till October. Then you need to tell guests that they may use 4 sheets per flush...that way, you won't run out. LOL And I think you should give me the towel, since it looks like my profile pic!! LOL, how awesome!!

You can't get a much more thoughtful friend than that! I'd say she knows you very well!
