I need your help!
I fear I may be a loser!
Indulge me, if you will, in two debates.
The age old "over or under" debate.
Or under (back)?
Okay to read from back to front?
Or ONLY acceptable front to back?
If you reply, you MUST answer honestly!
No sparing my feelings.
I'm a big girl.
I wear big girl panties.
I can take it.
sniff ~ sniff ~
I need to know.
Do I win the debate?
Or am I a loser?
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
In my circle of friends, I have failed miserably.
Here's my take.
T.P. should be put on the roll so the tail drapes down the BACK!!!
I guess that would be "under"
I don't want the tail flapping over the top at me.
"Here I am!!! Hanging over!!! Look at me looking sloppy!!!"
I want it neatly placed under (to the back)
where it will lie silently against the wall
neatly in line with the vertical lines of the cabinets and walls.
Anal? A bit. Correct? I believe so.
My husband and (as I have recently found out)
a couple of close friends find my way completely unacceptable.
They are of the "over" crowd.
Swearing it only makes sense that the extra paper tail be resting atop the roll.
Can this be???

As for the magazines.
I get them. I love them. I devour them.
I read them back to front.
Not religiously, but 90% of the time.
Now I'm not a total freak.
Books, letters, mail, everything aside from magazines
gets read the proper way from top to bottom, left to right.
There's just something about magazines.
I pick them up and they demand I start from the back!
"play with me"
I read them bits and chunks.
Starting in the back, flapping toward the front.
Whatever grabs me I read.
Next time it is picked up, I do the same.
Like a lottery of entertainment.
my world was shattered.
A friend told me that reading a magazine from back to front
was a freaky thing to do.
"NO ONE reads from back to front"
"I beg to differ! I do! And I'm someone!"
"Well that's just plain strange."
"What about all the people leafing through at the doc office? Do you think they pick them up and read front to back? Or do they pick something willy nilly? Perhaps EVEN starting at the back?"
"No One starts at the back. It's just wrong."
She even pulled in another friend. We were at a party when this ugly debate started. The friend? Agreed with her. Then again, it was HER friend. They actually started laughing at me and saying how ridiculous it was. They were asking around and guess what???? I was the ONLY one to read back to front! Of course I have no clue if everyone was being honest with me. After all, it was my friend throwing the party. Perhaps they all agreed with her as not to risk being kicked to the curb on the night of the party!?!?
Once again, my circle of friends claimed
I was the loser.

dear bloggy friends....
I reach out to you.
in need of two answers.
over (front) or under (back)
acceptable to read from back to front?
yes or no
I will be
anxiously lurching around patiently waiting for the results to see if I have won the debate (yes!!! winner!!!)
if, in fact, I am a loser.
Thanks for playing along!
Have a happy, safe, brilliant weekend!
