I was just perusing British Expats while waiting for Illustrator to stop going crazy when a toilet talk thread caught my attention. The conversation had turned to observations regarding the humble loo roll and they’re right, by Jove, all the toilet roll over here is white. No choice of colour at all. No peach, misty green or soft baby blue. Just white. White. White. How dull.
When walking down the aisle in the supermarket I thought something seemed weird but couldn’t place it. But that’s it, it’s the lack of hue in the loo roll department.
Update: Bill says it used to come in different colours and he’d not noticed the shift to white, it snuck up on him. Now he’s thoughtful and curious too.
