An ode to Scott 1000 Toilet Paper, as performed by American glam metal band Cinderella from their 1988 album Long Cold Winter: Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone). An excerpt:

Do you want to see me beggin’ baby
Can’t you give me just one more day
Can’t you see my heart’s been draggin’ lately
I’ve been lookin’ for the words to say
Don’t know what you got till it’s gone
Don’t know what it is I did so wrong…

I didn’t realize this was about Scott toilet paper at 1st. it’s a really beautiful song actually. I was apparently “ready” when it came to Scott toilet paper because I bought a 22 roll pa c k plus an 8 roll pack back in January!
I’ve learned a bigger lesson about having more food packed away.
