Toilet paper trivia

Have you ever used toilet paper to get to know a person? No, I am not kidding.  No, I don't mean, "you can tell a lot about a person by the kind of toilet paper they buy."  I think the fact that they are buying toilet paper tells us more than enough about some people.  … Continue reading Toilet paper trivia
