Random Thought of the Day

Okay, so you know those auto-feed paper towel dispensers, where pulling one brings out the beginning of the next one? Am I the only one who finds it hysterical that they have an "Emergency Feed"?
What sort of emergency do you figure they had in mind? I'm picturing this drastic scenario - I need paper towel, STAT! Someone is bleeding out on the bathroom floor and I must immediately stanch the wound? The ship is sinking and you have to plug the leaks? You're in battle and must wave a white flag? Suggested by my friend Meghann: You have a hot date and need to pad your bra? (I'm fairly sure I'd never need to use this one...)

Or you might need to play an emergency game of pin the tail on the donkey and use a paper towel as your blindfold!

Or staple two together and make little surgery shoe covers for the bleeding victim on the floor mentioned in the post!

HAHAHA! Nice! I hate those things anyhow, they never work right!

Too funny. I have the problem of the motion sensing ones not sensing me at all. I am invisible to them or something.

You ran out of paper plates?

There is a bar near our house that has that. And while admitting that it was the first time I'd ever seen one means I don't get out that often, it's true. My friend and I had one too many and the next thing you know we'd broken the seal, if you know what I mean. We went to the ladies room (because that is what chicks do, go in pairs, because we ALL know we can't possibly pee alone) and did our thing and then washed our hands. Well...suffice it to say we're the kind of girls that bring our cameras with us everywhere (as proof we actually got out of the house) and we have an album of 'girls night out' consisting of things we did with the towel dispenser and the joy it gave us. ;)

I know. We need a hobby.
