Toilet paper back in stock: “Mine, mine, mine!”


The surprising run on toilet paper the past 2 weeks left paper product aisles vacant.

Toilet paper and boxed tissue/Kleenex items were not to be found until recently when at least bulk toilet paper returned this week to our local Walmart.  My mom and I, however, were forced to buy a 20-roll package of Scott, our favorite brand, instead of single or 4-roll packages, which were not to be had.

20 rolls of toilet paper were our only option.  That’ll last us well into next year!

Aside from us, who else in the family was interested in toilet paper?  None other than our Chinese rescue, Bridget.  

Miss B, as we like to call her, has been with my mom now for 9 months after I brought her here from China last summer.  She has adapted very well to American life, and that includes her love of toilet paper.

To those of you with a canine companion:  Keep your toilet paper close, and your dog even closer.  Enjoy your day, everyone.  I know Miss B is certainly enjoying hers.

I have been in the Asia region for 30 years as an English language teacher. 28 of those have been spent with the Amity Foundation, a Chinese NGO that works in all areas of development for the Chinese people. Amity teachers are placed at small colleges throughout China as instructors of English language majors in the education field. In other words, my students will one day be English teachers themselves in their small villages or towns once they graduate. Currently, this is my 13th year in Luzhou Vocational and Technical College. The college is located in Luzhou city (loo-joe), Sichuan Province, a metropolis of 5 million people located next to the Yangtze River .
