This is a little off topic, but hey… it’s a blog. Why is the toilet paper roll a toddler magnet? I don’t know how many times I’ve rewound the toilet paper roll after our little one unrolled it onto the floor at 5,000 rpm. It usually ends up looking like a bird nest stuck on the wall. So the other day I noticed the toilet paper was put on with the end going down the back and against the wall (as opposed to the easier-to-access over the top and in front position) . Andrew came in and started pawing at the roll and… it didn’t unroll onto the floor! Cha-Ching! He was little perplexed and started picking at it, but he didn’t get it unrolled everywhere. He got bored and took off to create some other small natural disaster in the house, buthe toilet paper was saved!
So if you have toilet paper that refuses to stay on the roll, try putting it on with the end going down the back. It might spare a roll or two.
