Whatever Works

I looked around frantically.  Nothing!  My fingers pushed past coupons, credit cards, chapsticks, scissors, pens and hand sanitizer. I rifled through every pocket in case a napkin was hidden under a gum wrapper. 

Ah hah! I glanced around surreptitiously and quickly unwrapped a pantiliner. Folding it in half, I reached up and wiped my toddler’s nose. I folded it again and dabbed at the remaining snot threatening to drip into her mouth.

I am glad I use the unscented kind.
