photographic evidence


the scene from yesterday


It's been awhile since I've posted a pic of toilet paper, but I thought the light looked ironically ominous as the roll sat on the windowsill, so I grabbed the camera.

I should have gotten the shot of the empty roller, but didn't think of it until after I'd already almost fallen off the throne trying to reach what I thought was the last remaining roll, deep in the corner of the cabinet under the sink. After getting it on, I looked up to see this roll beside me.

It's a comment on my control tendencies, but I admit I was glad that no one had put it on because I would have had to change it so that the roll came off the top, lol.

  1. Of course it has to come off of the top. Ridiculous to think otherwise. Common sense really. Not controlling at all. Practically speaks for itself...I must come off the top. Any one can plainly see that. Up and over not down and under.
    By the way I am not controlling.

  2. How many men does it take to change a toilet paper roll? No one knows, it's never been seen...

  5. I always hang my toilet paper to unroll from the top too. Having it un-roll from the bottom would just make me pop my hair barrettes.

  7. Even though I make sure the kids fill up each bathroom with toilet tissue each week during chore day, I STILL find myself putting the next roll near the holder because nobody seems to remember how to change it. Amazing.

    Just found your blog. I'll be back. :-)

  8. OMG - that is exactly what I go through -- thrilled because he changed the paper -- resigned to change it to the top -- again!!!!

  9. I'm pretty sure they put it under, down under. Isn't that where the term came from? Of course, if that's so, then why isn't this part of the world referred to as up over? Hmmmm. You have given me food for thought.
