The Fabric Scissors
Did you have seemingly random and ridiculous rules as a child? Inane guidelines that just made life harder for no reason. It was so when I was a child. My mom’s #1 Rule: Don’t use The Fabric Scissors
for anything but fabric.
Other rules were bendable. Eating at the table was the norm, unless there was “good” show on. Wash the dishes after you get done with baking experiments – I became very adept at avoiding that one. Track mud through the house? Expect a scolding, but it was not too awful. Use The Fabric Scissors
to cut paper – unforgivable. I’m writing this twenty years later, but I still cringed picturing my mom’s scowl.
Once, my older sister did cut paper with The Fabric Scissors
. I remember this incident quite distinctly. We were at an after-school regalia-making class and we were laying out our outfits. My mom saved her lecture until we got into the car. It was that calm, cool voice that moms and aunties have; the one that’s worse than yelling.
In the intervening years, my mom has decided to bequeath me her beloved sewing machine. This is despite my total lack of sewing skills. “Sewing machines jam when I look them,” is what I like to say. So why would my mom leave me her sewing machine? Probably because I never cut paper with The Fabric Scissors
It seemed so ridiculous at the time, but as an adult, I understand. Miigwech N’gashi for teaching me right.
