Tomatoes

My mother-in-law has for some time had a small rack for holding paper napkins on the dinner table. It is constructed of a rectangular wooden framework with the two large sides made from fabric that is all bunch up—gathered, I think is the term. I never paid any special attention to it, but my 3 year old son, who has been watching the Big O clips on youtube, asked about it. He noticed that the fabric was white, with a design in red and green and asked what it was. I had to pull the tightly folded fabric apart to see what it was.

“The red parts are tomatoes and the green parts are their leaves,” I explained. “Who would have thought that Grammy would have something Big-O themed on her table!”
