No, not about Phil Robertson or healthcare. About something that hits much closer to home – Over or Under? The great toilet paper preference issue.
On December 7, 2013 we had a little ice storm here in Texas. You might have heard of it, some referred to it as “iceageddon 2013”, “icestorm 2013” or…Cleon. If I cared enough I would look up why they chose to call it Cleon, but I don’t so I won’t.
Cleon left thousands in our area without power for quite some time. I lost power for about six hours, and for those six hours I went to my parents’ house. They didn’t have power either but they did have gas logs and a generator. Heat and a refrigerator, what else do you need? Once my power came back on I was blessed with a few house guests for the weekend. I really enjoyed the company and they were not a bother at all! (They even straightened up my apartment while I was at work, how great is that?) The comment was made that they were being an inconvenience and I would be glad when they left, but the only thing that I noticed was…the toilet paper roll was put on backwards. This happened in the upstairs and downstairs bathroom, so I know my mother was involved too. (How could my own mother be involved in such a thing?) The toilet paper was placed so that the paper was unrolled UNDER the roll. What is that nonsense? It makes much more sense to me to have it OVER. So, I corrected both of these rolls without mentioning another word about it. I didn’t want to complain. And I could write about it later. So, over or under? My vote is over. Obviously.
I hope you all fared well during Cleon and stayed warm. Christmas is just around the corner, woo!
