HELLO, DOILY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was a daily dose of doily at 7th and Montana on Sunday as an Attractive Young Newcomer made the scene wearing what appeared to be a doily around her waist. "Is it my imagination, or is she wearing a doily?," I asked. Cathy chuckled. "That's a doily, alright" she replied, "But I doubt any of your readers would know what a doily is." A doily, according to dictionary.com, is "any small, ornamental mat, as of embroidery or lace" or "a small napkin, as one used during a dessert course." Years ago, doilies were used to protect wooden furniture, but seeing one now, reincarnated as a dress, made me think of a cross between Arsenic and Old Lace and the Mod Squad. To the fashion plate responsible, I have just one comment, it's not a bad look, but Whistler's Mother called and she wants her napkin back!
