I have long believed that it's perfectly okay to just set your roll of toilet paper on top of the spool instead of actually putting it on the spool. Please read the blog I wrote about it before you read this post.
And now, I have a big announcement. Brace yourselves. You might want to sit down.
I am shocked and deeply saddened to report that last night, all my beliefs about toilet paper were rocked to the very core when my husband dropped the entire roll of toilet paper in the toilet.
This is my version of what happened:
This is an actual photo I took right after he said, "Could you come help me, please?"
And that was Angel Soft, mind you, not the crappy generic stuff that feels like it would be better suited as a party decoration.
For your further edification and amusement, these are the exact words Ari used in response to this ordeal:
"I'll tell you what's happening right now: the entire roll is going on the spool! How's that, miss smarty-pants blogger? Chances of ENTIRE toilet paper roll going in the toilet while it's on the spool: ZERO! What do you think of THAT? How's THAT grey poupon*? …Okay, I don't know where I was going with that."
Again, that is a direct quote.
I guess in our household, we are just too clumsy to do anything innovative with our toilet paper. I offer my sincerest apologies to all my faithful followers and fellow believers. The toilet paper spool beat me, but it doesn't have to beat you. Just be really, really careful not to drop your toilet paper in the toilet.
* I Googled "grey poupon," and it is apparently some kind of mustard.
