What do your paper towels say about you?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Internity : One Thread

As I was in the store today, I was buying paper towels, which doesn't take me a long time because my brand is Bounty, period. But I found myself selecting which kind I wanted. I always do that but I never thought about why I do it. Did I want the fun-prints? Or would I choose the ones that have a "heart & home" theme, or just the ones with a border that matches the color scheme of my kitchen? I *am* consistent in that I NEVER buy just plain. Sometimes if I have company coming, I choose what I think would be appealing to them. If it's the preacher, I choose ones that are close to scriptual. I even bought a roll that had Precious Moments for a newlywed couple who just got back from their honeymoon & I know that they collect Precious Moments. Am I a sick puppy or what?

I have to say that my paper towels are saying.."You wonderfully thrifty person. You have chosen me. I am the chosen paper towel. She is cheap and because I have a new home. I sure hope she buys toilet paper too."

I get pissy when I have trouble finding plain white paper towels in the supermarket. I've had times when I stand in the aisle, asking out loud, 'why can't I find white paper towels? What do you have against white paper towels? It should not be this difficult to find white paper towels.'. This embarasses the hell out my fiancee.

Oosp. I meant 'fiance'.
