Beautiful First Day

It was a cold but beautiful first day of the new year.

Walked a labyrinth with a good friend.

Had westcoast eggs benedict at Ferguson Point Tea House.

The waiter seeing our dark clothes, removed the white napkins, saying, “I’ll get you black napkins so you don’t get lint on you.”

It’s a nice restaurant and this seemed like a nice, albeit odd, thing to happen.

If the restaurant is so nice, though, why do their white napkins have lint?

My friend suggested we take the napkins as a souvenir, especially since I seemed to see some significance to being given a black napkin on New Year’s Day.

Just went googling and found all I ever needed to know about black napkins. This blog claims 75% of restaurants have black napkins available.
