Just call me Scarlett.

.

Scarlett O’Hara was quite a broad.

Selfish? Yes. Manipulative? Most assuredly. But lately, I’ve seen shades of myself in her most famous quote:

.

.

Never again.

Yes dear readers, I have vowed that a fall resurgence of the world wide pandemic will not catch me unaware again.

It’s true.

I have become that which I despise.

.

.

There are 16 boxes of tissues in my spare bathroom closet.

.

And yes….

.

.

There are 23 rolls of paper towels and 22 rolls of toilet paper in my spare bathroom tub.

.

So bring it Covid 19 hoarding shoppers! Clear the store shelves of bathroom paper supplies at your first October sniffle.

River Scarlett is ready.

She will never wipe her butt with sandpaper again!

  1. I told my husband he can gauge my anxiety level by the amount of animal protein I have stuffed into the freezer. My hand sanitizer and paper products stash is squirreled away in my sewing room or my old office?current artspace.

    It’s not just the virus….it’s hurricane season for at least another month, and as this election approaches, I am not sure if the unrest will turn violent here in the NYC suburbs.

  2. Snookums was so far ahead of the curve … we still had TP and tissue even though we had a couple of relatives caught in the lockdown with us for two months …
    I notice that the white goods closet has been replenished …
    The only shortage I experienced was my favorite brand of pickles …

  3. Better go shopping…when ours gets that low, I go back to the store and double down. We were not caught short the first time. I consider 3 twelve packs of paper towels and 4 twelve packs of Scott 1000 tissue as “depleted”

  4. There’s nothing to rwith being prepared. It’s when you go and buy 12 packages of toilet paper all on the same day that you’re an asshole. You have to spread out your hoarding a little at a time. Hope you have a stand-alone freezer. You might want to put some food away, too.

  5. I see nothing wrong with your preparations (we wouldn’t have to do this mild hoarding if it wasn’t for the fanatics), but I’m also pleased that you have now made it “cool” to stack things in the spare bathtub. We’ve been a little tight on storage space at Bonnywood lately and this might ease the pain…
