Until this week, The Duchess and I were resigned to living at a level of domesticity no more sophisticated than the local Holiday Inn. Our cleaning service would arrange the end tissue of the roll of toilet paper into a dowdy triangle (see below), signalling that our household resided in the same sphere of graciousness as a roadside motel.
This week, however, the folks who tidy Casa Showalter upped their game. After their departure, we discovered the flat triangle style had been replaced by the fan shown atop this post.
And, take a look at the flower petals facial tissue blooming on Penny’s bathroom counter.
Clearly, we have arrived. Yep, the Showalters have arisen from outhouse to origami toilet tissue in two generations.
Just keeping America great.
