I have an amazing friend that I met in high school. She is by far the most creative, inspirational, and all around wonderful person I have ever met. I hadn’t spoken to her in a while, but recently, we reconnected.
A few months ago, I received an invitation to her wedding.
I didn’t know what to get her and her fiancee. I wondered what she could actually use; something that she would need. Something both of them could make use of. And then a thought came to me.
I would get them a year worth of toilet paper.
But I didn’t want to bring a huge box of toilet paper to the wedding. I couldn’t imagine how much space a year worth of toilet paper would take up.
I decided to write them a check.
But the idea of just handing them a check really bothered me.
So, I decided to write a wedding letter to go with it.
I wrote and wrote.
(I am certain now that you are getting your money’s worth with Costco’s Kirkland brand toilet paper.)
I even wrote my own wedding certificate.
I wrote for three days straight, watching a ton of movies (thank you Netflix Watch Instantly).
425 sheets later, I finally finished.
I included a check for a year worth of toilet paper,
which they won’t find until they read to the end.
The hardest part was re-rolling the toilet paper.
Unfortunately, the rolled up toilet paper would not fit in the original plastic cover that I had carefully taken apart.
I didn’t think it would be appropriate to just bring a loose roll of toilet paper to the wedding.
I decided to create an original label using left over construction paper.
I used Martha Stewart’s lovely “Foil and Parchment in one” sheet for the cover.
Using superglue, I put together the toilet paper roll.
This is the finished product. Happy Marriage Mel and Marc!
