You might recall my recent post where the can of hominy was larger than the head of my spouse? One afternoon as I came home from a grocery run, R said “Come in here; I have something for you.” He proceeded to hand me the tiniest package of toilet paper I have ever seen.
The hominy can is 7 inches tall, and 6 inches in diameter. Let’s look at that comparison again:
A roll of this tissue was 3 1/2 inches tall, and 2 3/4 inches in diameter–including the hole in the center of the roll…meaning the whole package of six rolls fits inside the can. You may be saying to yourself right now “Wow, where could I get some tiny rolls of toilet tissue! I have dreamt of using a roll that will fit in the palm of my hand instead of those bulky old triple rolls that require a fork lift to get it onto the paper dispenser!”
Had I already purchased my 6-pound can of hominy when I placed the order for the toilet tissue March 16 (you know, during the critical time when some folks thought it was a good idea to buy 100 cases of toilet tissue at one time), I might have looked at the woman’s head and the package of toilet tissue and said, “Hey wait a minute…that pack of paper is smaller than the woman’s head, which means it is smaller than a 6-pound can of hominy!” Not only could I have saved myself $14.99 and a 51-day wait for delivery, but I could have peeled the paper label off the hominy can and obtained almost as much paper!
Suzassippi has sworn off buying online. And that’s all I have to say about that (Forrest Gump, 1994).
