I travel a lot. I fly red eyes, morning flights, afternoon flights, morning flights followed (what feels like immediately) by red-eyes… you name it.

I actually fly enough that I get a free Club membership with US Airways.

So I decided that I’d analyze toilet paper at airports (yes, this idea was likely after one of my morning flight/red-eye combos). My preliminary findings (stay tuned for updates) conclude that the worst toilet paper on the planet is in the Philadelphia Airport. New York’s LaGuardia isn’t much better. The best toilet paper when you are on the road is the US Airways Club in Charlotte, NC. Trust me, I’m expert on this stuff.

But nothing holds a candle to the 3-ply (that’s right, 3-ply) toilet paper I found at CVS Pharmacy on 14th Street in Washington, D.C. I did a triple take (no pun intended) when I saw it, and even though I wasn’t in need of toilet paper, I had to get it, and I’m tempted to carry a roll with me in my carry-on.

Wow, was it worth it. Wiping will never be the same again. And neither will the way you look at me, surely.

    I’ve been laughing on and off about this since I read it last night.

    Honestly, more info than we really need.

    hillarious! Although conspiracy comes to mind. Why does DC get the good stuff???

    With all of the crap there is in Washington you need the extra ply(s). With this type of insight I’m surprised the Republic has not tried to hire you. ;-}

    It appears that your exhaustive travel schedule has left you ‘wiped out’.

    Given your extensive research, I would expect that you are aware of how the starship Enterprise is similar to toilet paper??? The starship Enterprise circles Uranus in search of Klingons…..

    I know, I know…TMI…but you started it.

    This is one of your best posts! I love a good toilet paper post! You could be a secret toilet paper reporter as a side job, like one of those secret reporters for restaurants.I think you may definitely be traveling a little too much.

    I should start my own blog and build it with 3-ply tp to clean up all the bs you spew on a weekly basis. Unbelievable.
