So after earth day, I thought I ought to be better to mother earth. In an attempt to do so, I switched my cleaning supplies as well as my puppy stain remover to eco-friendly versions, since those are two things I use a lot.
Then I thought, gee, why not use environmentally friendly TP? It’s recycled paper (not TP paper, thank goodness), and so it’s better for the planet than the luxurious Charmin I am used to buying.
We finally used the last bit of the fancy TP, and this morning I sat down on the potty to the new TP.
Instead of a nice, soft handful of pooper paper, do you know what I got? I got slapped with the scratchy, one-ply scrap paper pile that made me feel a little violated in my post-wipe routine.
“It makes me feel like I’m really getting clean!” said Steve joyously.
“BUT IT’S ONE PLY!!!”
I can’t use one ply! You get that kind of crap in the theatre when you’re out, but home?!?! Home is supposed to be where the really great stuff is. I mean, I understand that I bought TP that was recycled, but isn’t there a way to help mother earth, and not remove the epidermis on my ass???
