When a thing becomes scarce, it often becomes more dear to a recipient. Take, for example, toilet paper—an everyday soldier ready to assist at any hour.
For a few weeks in America's recent past, things looked dank and dark while our bleached patriot took a powder. During our quest to possess, we saw neighbor pitted against neighbor in the aisles. The swift swooped in with a single goal: clean-up by picking bare the public stockpile. Profiteers raided big box supply houses, while others watched their livelihoods slowly unroll closer and closer to reveal the terror of a last square.
But this too shall pass, for now it seems the battle of the expulge is clearing out. Returning safely now to our homes, welcome the single-ply, double-ply and triple ply compatriots to a place of honor aside the throne.
