I was probably five years old and missed my Mom when I was at school. Back then, kindergarten was only half day, but I still missed my Mom. I distinctly remember my kindergarten teacher dabbing my tear-streaked face with soft, plush Royale tissue. How did I know it was Royale? The distinctive logo and who could forget those adorable fluffy white kittens?
I think the very first commercial I remember seeing was the one with the two playful Royale kittens. I even asked Santa for a white kitten for Christmas because they were so cute. Santa never brought me a white kitten, but my Mom got me a plush toy that looked like one of the Royale kittens. Apparently, a real cat wouldn’t have been good for an asthmatic kid who was allergic to cat and dog dander!
Since those early years, I’ve been a bit of a tissue snob. I am now a frugal farmer’s wife, but there are a few things I will not skimp on. Tissue paper is one of them. I have sensitive skin, so nothing but the softest tissue for my nose! The thought of wiping my nose with sandpaper-like stuff just won’t do. It’s always been Royale for me.
