*Lill arrives home*

Jill: Hey, you just missed my mom.

Lill: I never miss your mother Jillian – and the announcement was unnecessary as her visit is obvious.

Jill: *Raises eyebrow* Oh?

Lill: Besides the lingering scent of her perfume, which I suspect is drawn from the lifeforce of several unwilling young men, there is a mountain of toilet paper, Kleenex and paper towel in the entrance way.

Jill: *Sigh* What is it with post-menopausal women and paper products? Is it a fear of running out? The lure of cent-saving sales? Preparation for the apocalypse?

Lill: One of life’s great mysteries I suppose…

Jill: Hmm…what should we do with all of this?

Lill: Well, the storage locker is already stocked to capacity and we’ve got enough stashed in the hall closet to last until Christmas.

Jill: Fort?

Lill: You read my mind.

About Lill and Jill

We are Lillian and Jillian; best friends and roommates. We blog to capture the seemingly trivial moments of thought and expression that make us smile; the often-times ridiculous way we see the world and how we live in it. We ask that you think well of us despite our propensity for drinking saccharine-laden alcoholic beverages, affection for 90′s boy-bands, and regular inappropriateness.

    I love that! My grandmother literally has enough stocked toilet paper in her house to serve a family of four for 3 years, minimum. And she still buys more when it’s on sale!

    I don’t get it.

    • Yes – exactly! We’ll have an entire cupboard full and Jill’s mom will ‘tsk’ all the way to Walmart to pick up another 600 rolls…I’m considering papier mache as a hobby just to get rid of it all…L
