Pipe Dreams

Tonight I had the peculiar realization that I haven’t purchased a single roll of toilet paper in well over a year. For various reasons, I never once had to buy toilet paper during my yearlong stay in Germany, and I haven’t yet had to buy any since my return at July's end. Now that I know this, I have an eccentric impulse to see how much longer toilet paper will continue to find its place at the right hand of my throne without my having to buy any. And yes, I did have this little epiphany exactly where you think I did.
