Lost, Found, and Smiling

Earlier this week we did our bi-monthly grocery shopping. We go to Sprouts for produce, Costco for various bulk items, and Walmart for everything else. After 1.5 years of marriage, we finally went through our first toilet paper batch from Costco, so we had to buy a new one. It was so huge that we left it in the car when we brought all the groceries in.

Later, around 4:00, Grant went out to put some air in my car's tire. He got the toilet paper out intending to bring it in when he was done. Around 11:30 that night he remembered... oops. He went outside and no toilet paper! Grant was sure it was stolen. Normally, I'd be upset about 20 bucks worth of groceries being stolen. But toilet paper? I laughed for quite a while.

Two days later, when we were sure it was gone for good, a little boy in our building knocked on the door and asked if we were missing some toilet paper. (What a strange question to ask someone...) I got it from the boy, buried under the covers of the bed and Grant had the best surprise ever- 36 rolls of toilet paper!

It's the little things that make life worth living :)

That's hilarious! I LOVE Sprouts, too!

Love this story. We have almost been married 2 years and I believe we just made our 3rd costco toilet paper purchase. So did the kid take your toilet paper and then feel bad? Or did he find it somewhere?
