How Soft Have We Become?

How Soft Have We Become?

    “How soft have we become?” I ask myself examining the toilet paper just purchased from the store. We seem obsessed with terms like soft, plush, cushiony, comfy & delicate when it comes to our backside. Like we’ve been using asbestos all these years & we want to change it up. It is amazing …
