I went with the 9=36 

Who knew I’d have to use first grade math to choose bundles of toilet paper? I have no idea why the numbers matter and why I’d choose 12=24 over 9=36. 9=36 sounds like a better deal, right?

While I was photographing the TP rolls with my iPhone, a store employee came down the aisle. I’m not sure what he thought but I smiled and he kept on walking. I bet my face is on some surveillance camera now.

Not sure what the 41+ means but I passed.

Started the day at the dermatologist removing a something-or-other on my chest. Nothing to worry about, just something I didn’t like looking at when I have a bathing suit on. It was an easy two second procedure. Only problem, the doctor was running almost an hour late, and I was there at 9:30. How does that even happen????

Anyway, another gorgeous day in the neighborhood. Won’t you be mine, won’t you be my neighbor?  🙂

    1. I guess the answer to your question depends on if it’s one or two ply!
      In the days of yore, the wedding announcement was mostly about the wedding dress- who made it, what it was made from, who wore the veil.. Today the bride might as well wear a toilet paper dress for the zero interest NYT readers have for what they determine to be useless information. Now it’s multiple Ivy degrees, a not-for-profit, three dogs that were in the wedding too, and maybe the profession of the parents.

      1. Wedding announcements in the 50s and 60s were all about the dress, and if the dress was from Priscilla of Boston, wow, you were rich. Note, Priscilla of Boston closed its doors in 2011. The photo then was always of and only of the bride, in her gown and veil, not the happy couple in a casual photo in jeans. What the bridesmaids wore was also of import to the readers of those announcements. Long gone are any of those traditions.

  1. The real Priscilla’s disappeared a long time ago. I think it was sometime during the 1990’s. The name was sold and sold until David’s Bridals bought it and closed up the shop for good.
    Priscilla Kidder had her workrooms in East Boston. Her lovely dresses were in high demand and some were available at reasonable price points.
    So many weddings today are over the top. To be a guest can cost big bucks when the festivities begin on Friday and end on Sunday afternoon at a location requiring weekend accommodations.

    1. Aha, that’s for the clarification. That timeframe makes much more sense.

      The killer is destination weddings AND being 30-something and forever a bridesmaid. The dress, the showers, the airfare, the shoes……minimum $1000 per wedding for these young women who are in demands as bridesmaids – like the movie 27 Dresses. So true.
