We don't need no stinkin' napkins!

Why use a napkin when you shirt sleeve does just as good of a job?
Chocolate pudding, mac and cheese, milk mustache, it doesn't matter how big or how little the mess my boys will always use their sleeves before a napkin. Why is that? What is wrong with the napkins I buy? They're soft and have pretty little designs on them.
Tonight for dinner I didn't say a word about using a napkin. I placed one napkin under their forks and stood back and just watched them. Brandon grabbed his napkin first, balled it up and threw it on the floor. I know what he is thinking..."if I can't eat it I don't want it!"
Nathan didn't even notice his napkin. It just sat on the table next to him in pristine condition.
They ate and ate and ate and at the end of their meal wiped their mouths with, what else, their sleeves.
I'm glad I own plenty of stain remover because I don't ever see this ending. Especially when I catch Brian doing the same thing.
