Today’s prompt suggestion is to use ‘his/her’s’. Thanks, Linda!
His and Her’s monogrammed towels. Yeah, that’s what I first thought about. Why that? I remember when I was a kid, we’d go to my granny’s house on Christmas Eve for a get together with some family members that were in town. We didn’t see these relatives very often, just at Christmas mostly. We’d have supper, a gift exchange, and most times the men would play dominoes.
Anyway, my aunt would all the time give my mom a set of his & her monogrammed towels. I always thought it was a nice gift, and were really pretty. Later on my mom would complain about it. She didn’t care for them, year after year, and said it wasn’t a good gift because there was no thought behind it. It was as if my aunt just grabbed something, without thinking of what my mom would like, or her interests, or anything.
Do they even have monogrammed towels these days? I have no idea, but if we had some I’m sure we wouldn’t care what towel we used, just so we had one to dry off with. If I only had the ‘his’ towel, I’d use it just fine.
That makes me think of toys for kids. You know, boy toys and girl toys. Why does it make any difference what toy a kid plays with? I know my sister and I had plenty of so called boy toys, like trucks and cars, cap pistols, and little green Army men plastic figures to play with. My first bike was a boy’s bike. We also had our dolls, and tea party sets, and play jewelry and make-up sets. I think a child can choose what they like to play with, and it may be the so called boys toys or girl toys, no matter if the child is a girl or boy. They’ll go from one to the other many times during a day of play.
So, that’s my thoughts on this lovely Saturday, about all things his and hers.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
