Who needs pearls when you've got toilet paper?

The Coronavirus crisis has forced us to reassess our reality, to reassess what is important to us and what is not. Who'd have ever thought that we'd be fighting over toilet paper and that we'd look enviously at a passerby as she carried an attractive 16-pack of luxury, 12-ply toilet paper? We've had too much time alone, too much time to muse, ponder and worry. Or maybe it's the time we needed. Maybe we needed to reassess our reality, to look at what we thought we knew with a fresh pair of eyes. WIth a fresh roll of toilet paper? If only I had one!
