The Importance of Ply
Day 004 – July 26, 2011
One of the first things that needed to be done upon landing in the City of Kings was to make our way to a local grocery store and buy provisions.
One of those necessities were napkins.
However, we learned a lesson today that not all napkins are created equal and that one (read “me”) really needs to look carefully when purchasing any item in a store in a new country.
Here’s what I bought today…
…one thousand single-ply napkins.
I’ve since learned three things after this purchase.
Uno) “Simples” in Spanish means single-ply
Dos) It takes about five of these “simples” napkins to clean up a small spill.
Tres) We checked and double-checked the packaging before we committed to buying our toilet paper.
