* WORDS ON WALLS - PART TWO *

Yesterday evening, about 3/4 of the blog post I'd written, disappeared after I received three comments. http://beckypovich.blogspot.com/2013/08/what-happened-to-my-words-on-walls.html  I'm also pretty sure that those wonderful women who left the comments, didn't even read the entire post, just what was there after the mishap.  

If it hasn't happened to you before, let me tell you it was one weird feeling. But hey, look how my week began http://beckypovich.blogspot.com/2013/07/vern-bbg-grill-hazel-roseanne.html

So, I hope to remember the gist of my story and retell it here.

*To All Women*: 

Do you live with a husband, or boyfriend, or significant-other, or male roommate? Do they ever replace the toilet paper roll when the previous one is empty? If so, then I think you are very fortunate women. Or maybe you have "trained" them properly! For the past 30 years I can guarantee that The Ronald has never replaced one single roll. Not one. I don't know about you, but it just makes me nuts to see a brand new roll leaning against the wall, on top of the empty cardboard tube. But, it's one of those things I've learned to "live with." 

You know, Choose Your Battles. So, I came up with what I think would be a cute and witty idea. I'd love to have these words posted on the bathroom wall:

"Replacing the toilet paper roll will earn you extra special benefits." 

But I know it wouldn't really do any good, because:

1) The Ronald would most likely never even notice it.

2) If he did notice it, he'd either chuckle or groan, and go on never replacing it. 

But, I'd get a kick out of it and I'm pretty sure so would anyone else who actually read it. That's good enough for me!

That's all I can remember, other than my "welcome" and the quote below.
