I think I’ve gone over to the dark side. I may need a 12 step program. Someone is this house who shall remain nameless (Ken says it was me, I say it was him) put the toilet paper in our main floor half bath so it unwinds under the spool rather than over it. And it…didn’t bother me. In fact, I kind of like how tidy it looks with the end hidden. I’ve always been a pretty die-hard over the spool fan, so this is kind of rocking my world.
Now stop mocking me. Just stop it right now. This is serious stuff. The toilet paper over or under debate is the topic of many (seriously, many) academic studies. Our preference for over or under may be an indicator of our personality, economic status, design aesthetic, and whether we own a cat (too tempting for felines when it hangs over). Ann Landers said that the toilet paper question was the most controversial issue in her column’s history.
