i'm a particular fan of the tp graphic. my grandmother was a tp hoarder. when she passed (it's been almost 12 years ago, can you believe it?), she left 150 rolls. my mom and i split them between us. and over the last 12 years, i've become a tp hoarder, myself. gods help me.

Makes total sense because it sucks SO MUCH to run out of TP. Then you scramble for things like fast food napkins you brought home just in case, and paper towels, anything that might work.

honey can you bring me that roll of paper towel? ROFL

Exactly! I can remember tearing off a few sheets at a time and hanging them through the toilet paper holder. They don't flush as well, though.

oh my!

and yeah - they do NOT flush well. especially with these newfangled wimpy 1.5 gallon toilets. LOL
