A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

Wow, did I ever get voted down last week! Who knew I was keeping online company with so many big fans of sentence-diagramming? Oh well...I stand by my view that it sucked and I hated it with a passion and it wasn't all that useful anyway. So there. Harumph!

On to the new thing, though: toilet paper! Or, rather, the dispensing of the stuff. It may just be luck-of-the-draw, but in every place we've lived, the toilet paper hanger has never once been located in the logical spot, meaning, to the right or left of the throne, in easy reach. The last apartment had it on the opposite wall, and every other place -- including this quite wonderful house -- put it on the wall behind the throne, so you have to do this really awkward reaching thing to get at it. Is this normal, or have we just managed to always be in a place where the toilet paper thing was oddly placed? This is why we so often end up just sitting the roll out on the counter. Where is your TP hung?

Ours is on the wall behind the toilet, to the left. You do have to reach back a little bit, but not so far that it's uncomfortable or awkward, at least I don't find it so. In our particular bathroom, there really is no other place to put it... old house, tiny john.

To the right!

If it were hung, just to the right of the throne. But our cats are so bad, it's actually hiding in a cabinet.

To the left and weirdly high up on the wall so it's a little above my head when I'm sitting. Not inconvenient, just odd. That's in the master bath. In the main bath it's on the left at a more logical height.

To the right, at the most convenient location possible -- if you happen to have arms the same length as mine. Since the house is nearing 70 years old and I've been there only a decade, I have to assume this is my dumb luck.
