Toilet Paper

I’ve noticed the world is divided by toilet paper. Thailand was a strictly one- ply toilet paper type of country. Israel is often one- ply with a two ply option. England is strictly two ply. Even in the tube toilets.
.
The more western a country, the more ply’s.

My desensitisation for consumerism began whilst in the Peace Corps. Years later, I’m over stimulated with all the accessories and clothing the western world offers. Signs of 75% clearance dance in front of me and my mouth froths. Suddenly, I am a victim of clean packaging and catchy slogans of the west. I am completely entertained of all the musicals advertised in the subway stations. I notice the baby doll cut shirts on every window display and the printed slip on shoes.
.
Tel Aviv has all of this as well. I just pretend it doesn’t. I like to think that we worry about other things more than what’s in the store window. We probably don’t.
