Have you ever noticed the joyful convenience of the almighty paper towel?
These quiet little masters of the universe are the heroes of every room. I love their very dry sense of humour. And when I need a pick me up, I also enjoy making little paper airplanes out of them to fly around the room. They’re always there for me, no matter what I need. They’re sooo damn convenient!
And they’re not just for having fun. You spill – they soak it up. You make a mess – they clean it up. You need a napkin – they wipe your chin. And with so many varieties to choose from, you can even select a size…imagine that! Always there for your size-wise convenience.
These little unsung heroes are the joy of every kitchen, bathroom, and well…just about any room in the house. Have a drippy nose and can’t find a Kleenex? No problem…just call on the every-ready paper towel and your snot drips are gone. Always mucus-ready and convenient!
And the best part is that there are no stinky cloths to launder afterwards. Those little beggars take pleasure in jumping right into the garbage (or green bin) after doing their job, to await their exciting ride and big adventure to the dump. Complete wash-free convenience.
So all in all, I think we need to set aside a special day to honour the almighty paper towel. I choose today, the last day of August to honour this humble beast of virtue and hard work. So from today on…I hereby proclaim August 31st to be “National Paper Towel Day,” to celebrate the Bounty of our good fortune.
And have I mentioned…they are just so damn convenient? Viva la paper towel!
Have a lovely weekend with your own family of paper towels.
See you between the lines.
Hey Pat. No need to put them in the garbage. They can go in the green bin for composting (in most communities). Cheers! Enjoy the long weekend.
Thanks Tom…I live in a condo and we don’t do that here. But you’re absolutely right. Post has been amended. Thank you.
Nice to see Boomerrantz back online! 💻 😀
It’s a start. Thanks.
Kudos for getting back into your amusing and informative saddle! I have total empathy for your situation. I too am paying “the price of 54 years of love”…Worth the price to be sure.
Thanks Jill. I’m sorry for your loss as well. It takes work…and time. Yes, all worth the price.

When writers get back on their feet, the first thing they usually do is write. I don’t know why, but it helps. Nice to hear your voice Pat.
Thanks Adrian. Yes there is a burning need, but so difficult to kick start the process again. I’m getting there.
So funny! I will respect my convenient paper towels so much more after reading this!
Our used ones go in a burn bag for the local garbage dump. 😂😂
Tanks Britt Girl…yes, they ARE so damn convenient! They deserve your BOUNTY-full respect.
I really enjoy your blogs – nice to have you back!! I will find so much more in my paper towel convenience now !!
Thanks Dianne. This was a trial run. 😊 I’m finding it hard to get back to writing. Hopefully in the new year.
