Response to The empressof all (Reply #7)

20. You have a point. It just seems odd to me that people are buying TP

instead of food. I go to Costco only every few months because it's out of my way. I went there a couple of weeks ago (I would have gone there on that day regardless of the virus) and I did buy TP, but only because I always do on my rare Costco visits. They still had quite a bit of it, but I saw carts piled high with packages of TP and bottled water. Bottled water? I don't get that either; there's no threat to the water supply. Maybe it's another one of those coping mechanisms. Anyhow, if I was that worried about being quarantined or unable to get to a store I'd stock up on nonperishable food items. You can't eat toilet paper.
