TMI?

(TMI means TOO MUCH INFORMATION for you acronymically impaired.)
We are in the middle of midterms.
This means a couple of things... migraines, late nights at school, weird hodgepodge meals through out the day, and migraines (did I already say that?) 
An interesting--I guess you can call it that-- thing happened to me the other night...
I went to the bathroom (that isn't the interesting part) and when I was done, I noticed that the 2 jumbo rolls of 1 ply tissue paper BYU insists on using were gone. No scraps even flying in the wind on the end of the cardboard roll. I sat there for a second, waiting for someone to fill the stall next to me. 
She came. I gave her a couple of seconds and once she had finished asked "Um... this is weird... Can you pass me some toilet paper?" Then she laughed and said, "I was going to ask you the same thing..." So there we were stranded. 
A third member walks in (This is beginning to sound like those 'man walks into a bar' jokes) We wait. I wait for the girl in the middle -- closest to the newest person to ask for the TP. It seemed like forever. So I quickly asked her, not wanting to miss my only opportunity to get out of this stranded situation, "Can you pass some toilet paper down two stalls?" So after a couple of seconds my package arrives. I waited there till all the other people left. I didn't want to see their faces. Moral of the story: Check for TP before you sit down, and don't stay late on campus, because they run out of such necessities. Now thinking back, I'm not sure what is worse. Using the toilet paper that two unknown sets of hands touched or just walking out with nothing. 
One day when I am in charge of designing public facilities my bathrooms will look something like this.

It seems like all the funny stories happen to you..and it's always on campus..what's with BYU? Was is that funny when I went there? I don't think so...or maybe i'm just lame.
But who hasn't been through the no toilet paper dilemma? Glad you got through it...whether you got a disease or not...hopefully not.
