I though I was imagining things. I double checked, yes the toilet paper in the hospital was getting narrower. I checked at home, it was narrower as well. I didn't measure but I had the distinct thought that my bottom was getting bigger. This is a problem! A Conspiracy! before I could dwell on the possible regulations and profit motivations of decreasing the toilet paper by a half inch I went into problem solving mode. How do you fold something to make it wider. It turns out that you can fold the paper on itself in kind of a star rosette pattern that makes it at least 6 inches wide but it takes alot more paper. I decided I have two choices, be in the lavatory longer and have people yell "what is taking you so long?" and yell back "origami!", or just go in with a roll of Brawny.
