Aloha Friday!

So I'm about 12 hours behind the 8-ball on this one, but it is fun, so indulge me!



Island Life is a new blog I recently discovered and she hosts Aloha Friday every Friday...with a simple fun question for readers to answer on their own blog and link back!

And for my first Aloha Friday, the question couldn't be more perfectly directed to me!  The question is:

Toilet Paper Dispenser...Over or Under?

For any who know me well, would know that I am very adamantly an OVER kinda girl when it comes to how my toilet paper roll sits.  Whenever I get into a discussion about weird irrational pet peeve kind of issues, the FIRST one I mention is that I HAVE to have the toilet paper going over the top off the dispenser!  In fact, if my child or husband has replaced the TP (which doesn't happen often...) and they replaced it wrong, I have to change it so the TP goes over the top.

And...okay I'll admit it, I've even switched the TP around at the homes of friends when I discover theirs is on wrong too!

I don't really know where this comes from, but I think it stems from a germ aversion.  It seems to me that if a TP roll is put on to come out from under, that means it lays against the wall and to me that means that it has more of a chance to pick up E.Coli or other fecal borne germs floating in the air.

COMPLETELY irrational reasoning, I know...but TP over the top is what works for me and always will.


How about you?

Always OVER! Why would you want to have it under?!

I'm an over girl too! I hate it when I can't find the start of the toilet paper (which happens when it's under). We should have shared a bathroom when we lived together...well, maybe. :)

Hi, Holly! I don't know if I have contacted you before, but I have been following your journey for awhile. We completed our first Colombian adoption in 2007, and are currently waiting for another referral. I have a question about Betty's Place (we are thinking about staying there). I tried to e-mail you but it came back. If you wouldn't mind me asking you some questions about Betty's Place please e-mail me. Your children are thriving and you are a beautiful family!
