You Don’t Know What You’ve Got Until It’s Gone

How true a statement.

What do you take for granted?

Imagine life without certain conveniences… Cars, phones, electricity, TiVo, freedom, liberty… Not necessarily in that order, however, but you know what I’m getting at when I say, “How did we ever manage without it?” We tend to feel helpless.

I left my phone at home once before. I’ll admit that after an entire day spent weeping amid periodic bursts of anger, sorrow, and feeling stranded, I may have kissed it and hugged it when I got home.

But of all the things we rely on the most, is there anything as tragically underrated as toilet paper?


Yeah, poor transition, but let me see you try to come up with a better way to announce that 4th Strand recently tested leading brands of toilet paper and paper towels…

Think about it for a moment.

Forgot your phone?

There’s voicemail and email.

 Car broke down?

There’s AAA.
