September may be the unofficial end of summer, but it’s the start of one of the most popular times of the year – football season! It’s time to place your bets on your favorite team and your butts on your favorite TP. Whether you are at the stadium or simply hosting or attending a watch party, the OVER/UNDER debate may roll into the conversation.
I have written about this subject in the past, I am in the TP OVER camp. It throws me off when I am a guest in someone’s home and their toilet paper roll comes from under, I just feel uncomfortable! I blame my mom who raised me this way! I am 57 years old, why would I change now? Cumulatively I may have spent a year of my life sitting on the commode, and have always had my toilet paper in the over position. I remember a babysitting job for my parents’ friends, and being upset and changing the positioning of their toilet paper! I am not embarrassed to tell you that I remember this from 40 years ago, in their downstairs bathroom, being quite perturbed at the toilet paper being in the down position. It is possible I may never have encountered that before! I became very determined that this was wrong and changed it to “over.” Now that I am an adult, I wonder if they ever noticed! I did continue to work there, and they never mentioned it.
I do notice the positioning of folks toilet paper when we visit family for weekend football games on Staten Island. I don’t like it, but I have grown up enough to leave it the way it is! Most of them leave their toilet paper in the down position. I have to give credit for that training to my mother-in-law. She has stayed at my home many times, helped us when our son was younger, and always finished roll after roll of toilet paper, and left it in the down position. I also noticed that sometimes, even when not changing the roll, she changes its positioning. She would probably tell me that she did that so my father-in-law wouldn’t get confused.
My brother-in-law’s always have an extra “interest” in the weekend football games and talk about under and over, and now when I am there, it is going to have a whole other meaning for me! I also now understand what it means, I thought it related to the football spread in a game, but learned that it represents the over or under versus the total points (predicted score) in the game. I guess I am not too old to learn!
I like to illustrate my point, as shown below, with some corresponding Charmin fast facts.
