So we need toilet paper. We were adding it to the shopping list, and I said "nobody's gonna have toilet paper." Charlene said, unaware of the news, "really?" I said "yeah, apparently there have been huge runs on toilet paper."

Then I realized what I'd said.

Did it make you feel crappy?

We’ve had TP on our shopping list for nearly a month. Luckily, we tend to buy the ginormous pack of ScottTissue and running low means being down to the last dozen rolls or so, so it’s not a crisis.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
