How did we get to this?
I stare at the last few squares of the toilet paper clinging to the roll with some trepidation. Panic threatens to set in as I try and imagine what I’ll do if there isn’t enough. I rummage awkwardly in the cupboard under the bathroom sink, but there’s nothing, not even cotton balls and I decide it’d be better not to risk it. As I put on my jacket to make a really quick trip to the store I wonder how it was we became so dependent on tp. What did we do before someone invented the pristine white rolls we buy every grocery trip? Curiousity got the better of me and would you know, apparently people used anything from leaves and handfuls of snow to cobs of corn or their left hand. Now, think about that the next time you have only a few squares of TP left on your roll! Google it, I dare you.
