It has come to this:

Yes, a post about my toilet paper dispenser.







Remember when $30 was what you'd pay for a whole set of bathroom accessories, including towel bar, handtowel holder and toilet paper dispenser?


Well, I chose the lot based on finally the only toilet paper holder that has ever made sense to me.


Picture yourself, half-dead with a feverish flu. You go potty, and the TP gods chuckle as your sick ass fumbles to change the roll on the dispenser. You're not miserable enough, when the springloaded bar goes flying through your fingers and skitters off across to the far reaches of the bathroom. Yes, the TP gods are laughing at you. You're sick. You don't feel like bending over because then your sinuses will flood another part and you'll be even less able to breathe, and who wants that? You peel what you need off the roll, plop said roll on the back of the toilet and shuffle back to bed.


A month or two later, you'll find the springload bar and put it back together and try to remember when it was you didn't replace it like normal.


Anyway, no more of that for me. Yes, I spent $30 on just the TP roll holder and I'm glad I did. This design by Kohler* ushers in a vibrant, sensible age for toilet paper accessories, something that has been begging to be invented since someone first squoze the Charmin. The left side of the holder is a lever, the right side being stationary and just the two pieces, nothing to fumble or drop. It's oh-so-very civilized.

This is not what I would have envisioned for the bathroom. It's better.


*label-whore moment!

*Sniff* You weren't really trying to impress us were you? Hansgrohe makes a $106.40 paper-holder and Windisch makes a $203 holder... ;-)
