It's the perfect way to start a new week. Funnies from readers.
I always enjoy your columns, especially the ones where our human faults and foibles take center stage. The embarrassing stories are always good for a laugh.
I was an innocent bystander to this young mother's embarrassing moment. I was in the check out line behind a frazzled young mom in a store which catered to babies and children. It was the week before Christmas. She had a cart full of toys and was struggling to hold her toddler on her hip as she paid for her items. What she didn't notice was that her little one had seen her reach into her large purse and pull out her wallet. The little girl decided to find out what other surprises were in there. She leaned in and began to pull out several tampons! She waved a few around and dropped some others, thrilled with her "prize." Her mother was oblivious as she rushed out of the store, leaving a trail!" -- Linda F.
"I laughed out loud, Suzanne, at today's [food on your shirt] column, not because you spilled on yourself, but because I do it all the time. I live alone and eat most meals at my computer or sitting watching TV in my recliner. But here's a solution, even though you seem to be a cat person: my little (fairly new to me) dog delights in cleaning me up once I've finished eating. She jumps up on my lap, and laps up the spills PDQ! She always seems to know..." -- Linda in Altadena
