Over the years, the way I wipe my arse has changed considerably. When I was a child, a baby, I didn’t wipe it at all. I went into my nappy like millions of others, and my mother wiped me clean with baby wipes and sprinkled me with talc.

As I grew, however, I was potty-trained and I learned to wipe myself. Shorts and pants down, t-shirt up, I stood by the toilet, unrolled the roll and took fifteen to twenty sheets at a time, wiped my bottom, folded after each wipe, and repeated until the sheets came back white.

  2. Jeez, Rene, if I’d been on the toilet I would have fallen off it. This was hilarious. I thought you just had to decide whether to fold or scrunch the tp …..and keep going till, well, you know. I’m tweeting this. It’s precious. 🙂
