While her husband, Thomas, was working hard at work many hours a day, Alyvia stayed home and prepared a good meal for him. All while watching their two kids Charlotte & Thomas Jr. After cooking all day Thomas would come home and complain about how the food ruined the table.
He did not understand it was her fault, there was nothing she could do about it. Thomas continued to demand that she find a way to fix it, Alyvia got tired of it and planned on taking the kids. But Thomas found out and was furious.
He forced her to stay and her rage only grew. As revenge she decided she would kill his prized pig. She thought that this was her greatest idea. Charlotte and Thomas Jr. were mortified, they had never seen their parents act this way. But, this wasn't the end.
After coming up with a plan Alyvia killed the pig and prepared many fine dishes to go with it, as a farewell dinner. During this she felt no remorse she was tired of the way Thomas was treating her. As she killed the pig she remembered everything he had done to her and said to herself, I want more. So, she put his favorite quilt on the table. Just to ruin it.
When Thomas saw the pig he looked confused, not upset, not disappointed confused. Of course this brought shock to Alyvia. "Yep. That's you're pig.", Alyvia said. Thomas didn't respond, he still stood there shocked. Finally he uttered a few words "How? bu-? did you-? thats-" and he paused. "THAT IS PERFECT", he screamed. "I knew you could do it" he said smiling. "Do what? What did I do?", Alyvia said since she was now the confused one. "Thats what we have been needing to protect the table."
Instead of ticking him off Alyvia had pleased him, the opposite of what she had hoped. From that day forward they layed quilts down on the tables to protect the mens very hard work. That day Alyvia made history. This was the Greatest idea she ever had !! Finally Thomas concluded, "We shall call them tablecloths and all our neighbors shall have one." That is, "How Tablecloths Were Created".
