The Ends

It wasn’t much, the new addition; just a bit of pipe and connector and some clever diverting on Jim’s part. Where he’d learnt that, she’d never know.

Still, when The End of Times came, Deb counted that bidet as a true asset.

      😀 When things got ‘serious’ here (the good TP running out at Costco), bidets went next!

        I can believe that but just connect a pipe like a mini shower hose with a small shower head and you have a bum gun…Sorted just in case the loo roll saga begins again 🙂 All mod cons here… haha

          I’m assuming that a few lemmings panicked and that set off the rest. 🙂

            Yes indeed 💜 and with the French closing their ports to us and the strain of covid and the late cancellation of Christmas things can only get worse! Happy days! 🌲🌲💜💜

    Well-timed and sound advice. The fact that it’s coming from an empty toilet roll is equally symbolic. Have a blessed holiday season with your family.

    Lol. You’re so funny. I never considered a bidet as a post apocalyptic necessity! Apparently, the world spins (unrolls) on toilet paper. 🙂 Stock up, have a wonderful Christmas, and a fabulous new year. ❤

      The TP Rush has been an amusing and annoying apocalyptic aspect for sure! 😀
