ok y’all, my laugh for the day. and laughing at me. I got up this morning, shoulder hurting like anything. I guess I over did stuff yesterday, anyway, weather forecaster, rain on the way. and I admit teasing granny with her pain in the knees, and rain on the way. heating pad on said spot, shoulder not knees. so lessons learned…
The toilet paper! I definitely got my laugh for the day from that one, even though we are currently, again, in a toilet paper crisis - quickly reaching stage critical in my household. And my brother literally had to dodge a murder hornet in his apartment last year!
The toilet paper crisis for what I understood; this virus come from a parasite? As we all know, most parasites cause in most cases; diarrea. The covid 19 caused a lot of stomach issues and diarrea in China so over there the need for toilet paper was immense. The news got around and people panic and started buying toilet paper in large amounts all over the world.
I thank the LORD I didn’t get covid but the ones I know (my oldest son, niece, sister) who got covid19, had a severe case of diarrea. I was so prepared for this that I bough Pepcid/Imodium by the dozen, and other product like teas for parasites. I would go to their doorstep, and hand them their needed supplies of meds to relieve their suffering.
I think it pays to be prepared bc we have a very famous Spanish saying: A guerra avisa, no matan soldado.
So the toilet paper in most cases are a must for many who catches the virus.
I never lacked not bc I went overboard and bought more than I needed, but bc I share with those who needed the TP, and I was blessed with not getting it, although my son got it twice, and I spend my time with him taking him to hospitals and making sure they didn’t let him die.
Now that I think about it; I never ran of toilet paper although I gave away the little I could find since evil hoarders left the shelf empty. I only bough a pack of 20 recently although the place was stacked to the ceiling, and the place had no restriction on how many you can buy. It was on sale too so that was dumb on my part. I love to take advantage of a good sale.
I hope when I go back they still have them $9.99 for 20 (it’s usually pay for 20 14.99/16.99 depending on the store). How much pay for TP where you live?
We actually used one of our stimulus checks to by Lysol spray , face masks and other protection items, we also distributed it to older relatives that we did not want to go out shopping; fear motivates , and we have seen a lot , I have known 12 people to die from COVID , my father being the latest just this week.
