To the girls who toilet papered my house,
So today I came home from my father’s house to find toilet paper strewn around the trees and all over the exterior of the house. TPing, as it is known, is a common practice is my neighborhood. It appears that friends of my sister (http://bit.ly/WbjgVT) threw toilet paper on our house Saturday night and the night before that.
Thank God for my mom, who cleaned up the toilet paper twice. As I write this, I am looking at toilet paper floating like tiny ghosts on the branches of our front yard tree. What’s left is what she couldn’t reach.
To anyone else who does this for fun, stop.
It’s vandalism, and unless you offer to clean it up you have committed a crime. My poor mother came back from a work event, a Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce dinner, at 10 p.m. She was exhausted from a long day and had to clean the paper off of the roof, trees and on our front porch. She fillled four garbage bags with wet toilet paper picked piece by piece off our lawn. She did this twice, once on Friday night and another on Saturday. Please parents, do not encourage this. Minors: stop doing this. If you get the urge to do this again, just throw the toilet paper at each other. You’ll have more fun. Or watch a movie. Or do whatever else 13-year old girls do. We live in the 21st century so you have so many media options: your Ipad, Iphone, computer, TV, game station or even a simple game of truth or dare.
Out of curiosity, I Googled toilet paper shortage. Detroit firefighters are currently in need because the city is bankrupted, so maybe you girls should help them out. You all probably supported the Kony 2012 movement, a sketchy plea for money to help a Uganda war criminal. Now is your chance to support some heroes right here at home. If you can’t follow the logic, maybe that’s because you have toilet paper in between your ears.
And in that case, just apologize to my mom.
