Over the years Joan and I have debated back and forth about whether to occasionally write about some “Just the Wrong Things.” We always decided that no, we should focus on the positive.
BUT, if I had to choose one simple, daily irritant, it would be those horrible skimpy paper towel dispensers in public restrooms. I could never dry my hands using one piece.
That’s why I was highly intrigued when I came across this TedX talk online in that post-Christmas troll the internet lull time. In the video, Joe Smith, a community activist and lawyer from Oregon, demonstrates how to dry your hands using only one paper towel. I was dubious but decided to spend the month of January trying his technique.
Guess what? It works! I’ve gone from a grab 3-4 towels gal to a 1-and-done. Watch the video. It’s only 4-minutes long and highly entertaining. Experiment yourself and let me know what you think.
