The Many Uses of Toilet Seat Liners

The air conditioning in my office building has been broken for three days. Even though it is a very mild 70 degrees outside, it is broiling in the office. Something about body heat and computer equipment making it hotter. I couldn't really hear the rest because my ears had melted off. As an added bonus, by the end of the day, my feet turn into giant, swollen, ham hocks, with that nice, sweaty ham smell. Who doesn't love that?

A coworker and I start discussing the gloriousness of casual Fridays when the office is so hot because we can get away with flip-flops. We move on to discussing the need for facial blotting papers, and she remarks on how toilet seat liners work great as blotting paper. Did you know this? It was news to me.

We agreed to show up to our noon meeting wearing an entire toilet sheet stuck to our foreheads with the flap open so we can see.

I've never used blotting papers. Do you use them regularly?

I love the image of you in a business suit, talking about of a toliet seat liner. You'd look like a magical tissue paper lion. Rawr!

Yes! Yes I did know this! And my face is very oily so blotting papers are my friends.

Kris, I erased your email, but Ann had an accident and she is out of commission for the next 6 weeks, and can't make the white earrings. But she has some that are a light pink that she can send if you don't want to wait. Those are the ones I was going to buy next, by the way, so just email her or let me know what you want to do.

You have to post a picture of that, if you decide to do it! I've never thought of using toilet seat liners for that, but it makes sense.

My office is freezing cold. I can never decide which is worse. It's not just a little cold and I'm fine if I put on a sweater. I'm talking need-mittens-a-scarf-and-a-parka cold. Inside. In June.
