Travel theme: White

On this life journey, there are times when you need to slow down, look around and find a few things you are truly grateful that they exist in your life. In this week’s Travel theme: White, I found two white items that for one, makes my life so much neater and the other, nicely subdues my hunger pains.

White Appreciation #1: Toilet paper

White Appreciation #1: Toilet paper.

If you are wondering what-the-heck, well, I truly appreciate and thank the Universe for both toilet paper and white rice!

We all know how vitally important toilet paper is…without it, life would be uh, one big smelly mess!

So, let us give a great shout, HOORAY, for toilet paper, and according to Joseph Gayetty, toilet paper is “the greatest necessity of the age.” Wikipedia states, in America alone, we spend on average about 2.4 billion a year!

White Appreciation #2: White rice.

As much as I like to eat white potatoes, (not white bread–*ick*) a meal is never complete unless there is a scoop or two of white-hot rice! Short or long grain makes no difference; just make sure the scoops are white and not brown or wild rice.

Finally, part of this “white” theme was to honor International Peace day on September 21, 2012.

    I think you are right about the toilet paper. I would go as far as say that modern times wouldn’t have arrived without it. How would us human being have had time to invent rockets that can send man to the moon, of we didn’t have toilet paper. On the other hand rice is less important to me, but I recognize that it’s the stable food for many people on the world. For me paper would probably be more important. I know we live in a so-called paperless society, but I still like to have my words or pictures or whatever printed on papers. Or just write in a book on white paper…

      *smiling* Otto, I love your toilet paper thoughts and how we are quickly moving to a “paperless” society. Hopefully there is enough of us “paper” lovers to keep it ever living and alive.
      Thanks for traveling by with your thoughtful conversation…
      have a great week!!! 🙂

    Oh, Sunshine, I just have to shout an AMEN to both your white choices! Not long ago, I was in a fret to get more toilet paper on sale (I only buy one brand because I’m picky)–because I was down to my last 48 ROLLS. Yes, obsessed. And white rice–oh! heaven in a bowl, especially with gravy!! I use brown rice sometimes–because I know it’s “healthier”, and I like it fine–but it’s just not the same–comfort food. God bless you, have a great week–love, sis Caddo

      Rice with gravy!!! Gosh, thanks for this reminder, sis. I am going to make it right now…with some huevos on top and hot sauce!

      It’s good to be picky about TP because one gets used to the feel and nothing can replace it…haha, thanks for the laughter to start my day. 🙂
