POTTY TALK

We have lived in our new home for almost 8 months now…enough time to gauge the good (quiet and scenic) and the not-so-good (having to haul our trash 1/4 mile down the road for pick up).   We were very fortunate to find a home that has lots of great upgrades, things that we have never had in other homes we’ve lived in…real hardwood floors, lots of great moulding, skylights, a huge six-burner stove.  Yes, there are many things to love about our new home.  But there is one thing in this house that in my opinion, surpasses all the rest.  I reaffirm my love for this thing on a daily basis, actually sitting and marveling at it several times each day.  I cannot believe that I lived without it for so long, never thought that such a small thing could make such a big difference.  What is this thing you wonder, that so help me I will rip out of the wall and take with me should we ever move from here?  It is, quite simply, our toilet paper holder.  My entire life I have always had a toilet paper holder like this one…

Where to change the roll you have to push in the bar thing, take off the empty roll, slide on the new roll and push the bar thing back in.  It’s annoying and nobody likes to do it.   And let’s face it, you know there have been times when you’ve purposely left just a few little squares on the roll (that SHOULD be enough for the next person as long as they didn’t have beans for dinner, no?) just so you didn’t HAVE to do it.   Or maybe I’m horrible and it’s just me that has done that…whatever.

But no more!  Because our new toilet paper holder is pure genius I tell you.  Behold…

Who knew this was an option?  Do you people know about this?  Am I late to the potty party here?  You just slide the roll off and on…done and done!  How much of my life has been wasted pushing that stupid metal bar in and out?  I will never look back, I tell you.  Now I purposely use TOO MUCH toilet paper just so I can finish the roll and remind myself how much I love this little wonder.

And it’s a good thing I love it so much because let me show you visually my sexist theory on the demographics of toilet paper changing…

MEN/BOYS:  DON’T KNOCK YOURSELF OUT THERE BUDDY

CHILDREN WHO ARE FAR TOO OLD:  “MOM!!!!! I NEED TOILET PAPER!!!!!”

Seriously?  I give up.  I, completely and utterly, give up.

    Good one Janene. After I have had the newer holder in my home,. I did not miss the metal bar once. Why couldn’t they have come up with this as the original? Maybe because the inventor wasn’t born yet? Ahhh…what a relief & time saving gadget that’s easy for all ages. Hope everyone is doing great & have a wonderful week.
