It was 10:50 p.m. and Hub and I were just dozing off in bed.  Suddenly, the house phone rang.  As I reached for the phone I glanced at the caller ID and saw that it was Shroom’s cell phone number.


“Aw crap, I was hoping my dad would answer the phone,” said Shroom.

I handed the phone to Hub and said, “It’s Shroom for you.”

Hub tiredly put the phone to his ear and said, “Hello.”  There was a brief silence and then Hub burst out laughing.  “Okay, I’ll be down in, oh, about 10 or 15 minutes.”  I could hear a loud protest from Shroom and Hub laughed again.  “Okay, I’ll come right now.”

Hub got up and put on his bathrobe.  “It would seem that Shroom is stuck on the toilet downstairs with no toilet paper.”  He went down the hall laughing.

And so, folks, this is just one more example of one more use for a teen’s cell phone…a call for toilet paper!  😉
