You were going to assume i was going to say box of chocolates? No. I heard an aptly defined analogy for Life tonight at a business dinner. Life is like a roll of toilet paper. When you get a new roll there is plenty of paper, it unrolls slowly and there are no worries.
Over the course of unraveling the roll you deal with a lot of shit (that one I threw in…seemed appropriate) much like life. As you get closer to the end of the roll it seems to unravel faster and faster and you start to worry about running out of paper leaving you stuck with a dirty ass.
I think the analogy fits perfectly. I’d have to say that my toilet paper roll is about 3/4 gone and it does seem to be unrolling faster than I’d like. I’ve certainly dealt with plenty of shit over the years and will continue to do so.
I wonder if I could get some t-shirts made and sell them with the slogan – “Life is like a roll of toilet paper”? I’m going to hit up my Zazzle account and try that. Link to be posted soon.
