Over or under?

As evidence that I'm becoming increasingly annoying to live with (we've been reading "Pregnancy Sucks for Men: What to Do When Your Miracle Makes You Both Miserable by Jeff Kimes and I'm pretty sure I fit half of the descriptions in there to a T, including one about how pregnant women may fixate on certain things, or become overly nit-picky) I have recently taken up a crusade to put the toilet paper on the roll "correctly." So Mikey and I had a debate the other night. I insist that over-the-roll makes sense. You rip of a square and you don't have to paw at the roll to find the next one. Mikey, on the other hand (while thinking the whole discussion was entirely ridiculous and, well, it was) thinks under-the-roll makes for easy tearing. Thoughts?

So I was trying to find a diagram for a presentation I'm giving (on a subject completely unrelated to toilet paper, mind you) and found this little TP diagram online.


How serendipitous. I immediately sent it to Mikey who didn't find it all-too-entertaining, like I did.

I think it's awesome. And I might just print it out and tape it above the roll as evidence that I am right (good).

Definitely over.

Men don't care as much because they don't use toilet paper as much as we do!

Brian and I have had this same discussion! Except it wasn't brought on through pregnancy, more like a bridal shower game. I vote under, and he prefers under. What a goof. Glad we're both on the same page though :)
