There’s no delicate way to begin today’s story: I was in the restroom.
As I was sitting, doing what people do in the restroom, I noticed something I had never seen before in a public restroom:
Curious, I leaned forward slightly, and looked more closely:
A date on a roll of toilet paper? I was completely intrigued. Was this the production date? But that seems like an awfully fast turnaround time to create, sell, package, and ship a product – even one as basic as toilet paper. So if the digits didn’t signify a production date, was it a use-by date? If so, what exactly will happen if a person wipes with (gasp) expired toilet paper?
I was slightly bewitched by this whole discovery. I slyly, deftly made my way into many different restroom stalls over the course of the day – and every full roll of toilet paper was stamped with a date.
How had I never seen this before? And what does it all mean?
Apparently it means that it doesn’t take much to captivate me, and that my curiosity will drive me to engage in some ‘interesting’ actions – like research the mysteries embedded in toilet paper. 🙂
