Grocery Shopping in the ME (A Tale of Toilet Tissue) ...

Ever find yourself spending a lot more time at the grocery store than you'd anticipated?  It happens to me every time.  

I think I suffer from tunnel vision and concentration issues, and I can spend ten minutes just in front of the canned tomato display, wondering if I should opt for the bigger cheaper can, the chopped or whole, the basil-flavored American variety or the local brand, or maybe I should just buy fresh and stew up a pot myself?

It's one of my annoying quirks.  I have wasted many an hour comparing nutritional values, quantity vs. quality, fresh vs. vacuum sealed.  

But never have I been so stumped as a few weeks ago.  I found myself in front of the toilet tissue display.  Absolutely at a loss.  In the past I'd weighed the pros and cons of double vs. triple ply, white vs. patterned, environmentally friendly vs. plush, but never, never, ever had I been as flumoxed by a choice as on that day.  Scent vs. sensation?  I did the only thing I could, I bought both.  Because you just never know.

The pictures below depict my dilemma.
