Musing in My Bathroom!

Don't forget to scroll down and check out FFM, my little kumquats!!

Okey dokey, my sweet chicks, I gotta vent! I was sitting in the bathroom this morning doing my business and I thought of something Hubs/Love Bunny mentioned to me several months ago. Now, I'm known in the family for.........ummmmm, how do I put this so as to not offend.........well, simply put - for stopping up "la toilette." It rarely, if ever, gets stopped up when hubs or visiting kids use it. Hubs said it was because I used too much toilette paper. Au contraire, mes amis, soooo not so!! I simply didn't do it any different - more or less, if you get my drift! So at that time hubs told me to use less "toilette paper"! So I rationed myself to 4 sheets per "visit" when I go to rid myself of the water bottle I hit frequently. I rationed myself to 6 sheets when I ate a lot of grapes, beans, etc. Now, my sweet blossoms, I buy the best tissue - Cottonelle 2 ply!! So it is thicker. (Oh, as an aside, let me mention here that when daughter and her hubby visited they doubled the amount we would normally use because they're used to the 1 ply "el cheapo" stuff and doubled up what would be considered "normal" amounts! Their "cheap" stuff is soft but you go through it like squirrels through nuts!!) Okay, back to story.

So I sat there and thought about it. Now, if I compromised and did "BOTH" at the same time, does that mean I can use 10 sheets per visit?? You know, 4 + 6 = 10???!!! I truly cannot see how that would solve the problem though. I think hubs is just reaching for that one, don't you?!?! I truly think hubs needs to direct his attention to more important things!!! Hah........

Just one of those things you think about when you have nothing else to think about. Hah... Oh, but wait till you hear what I think about when I awake at night staring at the clock next to my bed!!!!!!!! Whhhoooooooooo, chickees!!

  9. Connie; you crack me up! My hubby says the same thing to me. haha You made my night thanks have a great weekend.


  10. I've been accused of being a Crapper Clogger too!I have been instructed on how many sheets to use, how to fold the tp and how many wipes I can get out 6 sheets of plys by folding over and folding over and folding over! Hubs accuses us females on our exorborant use of the tp~~I tell him~~we have vaginas too so it's double duty for us!By the way, he works at a poop plant so I guess he a professional on butt wiping!

  11. Hmmm, we gotta find you something else to think about!!!LOL

    Too funny!

  12. Well Connie, you've really made me think about this thing because it's an issue over here sometimes. So I'm for the 4+6=10. Let the chips fall where they may, and deal with it as it comes. Prevention isn't a pound of cure in this case. Deb

  13. that was delicately put...thanks for sharing your ummmm story with women would dare talk of this and be okay with it...:)
