According to [Radar magazine], Canucks are giant steps ahead of Americans in adopting the latest personal care product: luxury toilet paper. Will Miller, a commentator at Indiana's Purdue University, attributes the trend to a desire for stress relief. "Time in the bathroom is sometimes, for a harried person, the only relaxation that they get," he says. Haute bathroom tissue is one of the more practical ways a person can indulge in the luxury market. "If you can't buy a Mercedes," Mr. Miller says, "then, by God, you can get good toilet paper."
Not only are we expats deprived of Tim Hortons, we are also without luxury toilet paper. Think of us with our chafing as you indulge. :p
Oh, I don't think I can go more luxurious than Cottonelle. Even super Cottonelle (not its real name) is too, uh, thick. Still, should anyone find the luxurious Canadian toilet paper, it wouldn't hurt to try it. Hmmm, maybe that's what I should've asked for for my birthday. Damn me and my timing.
And here I spend my time in the aisles looking for some simple, two-ply, no-pattern, non-quilted nothing fancy, T.P. Instead, it seems the execs have conspired to charge me megabucks for their particular quilting pattern.
Kim, I'm afraid of trying anything too good. What if I like it? Well, I guess it's not as bad as being hooked on Canadian chocolate and only being able to get it delivered in winter months. In Vegas, winter is like two months, maybe.
