What is August 26th? Among many things, it is national toilet paper day. I know, seriously, right! Who thought of this?? Maybe the makers of Charmin?
Hats off (or should I say, pants down) to those little rolls of paper that we all hold dear in that particular time of need. Heaven forbid a simple daily duty becomes a tricky situation. Imagine, you are in a public restroom. You reach for the toilet paper only to realize that the precious roll is bare! There is nothing left but the roll of cardboard and a tiny little scrap of TP blowing in the wind. Taunting you, as if to say “tisk, tisk, if only you had been here sooner. My last square could have been yours”.
Hurrah to the fabulous soul with the thought of “I grow weary of wiping my bum with leaves or prickly clumps of moss”. Thank you to the intuitive individual who said, “I will no longer wipe my behind with a cloth and then wash it out and hang it to dry! Throw it away and be done with it!”.
Let Us Celebrate!
I, for one, am very thankful for this modern convenience. This modern marvel that helped move us past the Dark Ages and into the civilized life that we know today. Hurrah for the soft caresses of a biodegradable quilted square against a bare tush. Hurrah I say!
