  1. Thank you for the hearty chuckle. Have you checked the price of TT lately. The first time I saw $20+ on a package I stopped dead in my shopping tracks. πŸ™‚ It has certainly been interesting to see which products and companies have recorded amazing earnings during the pandemic, those who are hanging on by their fingertips, and the many closed signs. History, medical, and business classes will be covering this time I do believe, and I’m okay with that unless they decide to track the number of desserts I’ve eaten. πŸ™‚ Happy Wednesday, Maureen.

    • $20??? You know, pretty soon they’re going to have to keep smelling salts in all the aisles. Prices are going to have us gasping for air. And I wouldn’t doubt for a minute that the history books will have quite a chapter (or two) about this time. I think they should devote a whole book to desserts eaten at this time — but, yes, without names!

      A happy Wednesday to you too, Judy, and thanks for straightening me out: I thought it was Tuesday!

  2. Commodious indeed. I was baffled by this picture and tic tac toe didn’t help until a search revealed it is noughts and crosses. I trust there were a lot of rolls in the $20 pack. I feel sorry for our toilet paper manufacturers. The shelves were bare and they were under great pressure to quickly produce significantly more than they knew we would need. Having done that, supply is pretty much back to normal and now we have special offers on it because so many people have a cupboard full.

    I thought it was Tuesday too, even though I had done a Wordless Wednesday post (?!)

    • Oh, dear. Excuse my laughter! Apparently we are all bobbing about in a fluid world without days. I can but shake my head and try to remember life as we knew it, when weeks had actual days in them, and when the supply of toilet paper wasn’t seen as a barometer of well-being.

      Noughts and crosses! That makes a lot more sense than “Tic-Tac-Toe,” except for the rhyming (“Tic-Tac-Toe, three in a row”). We speak the same language in so many different ways!
