It seems to be a rite of passage for adolescents. . . since they are uncomfortable with their changing minds and bodies, they often engage in inappropriate activities in an effort to impress others or to show affection. For adolescent boys (and apprently adolescent girls as well. . .) the "Doorbell Ditch" and "Toilet Papering" are popular stops on the road to adulthood.
At about 7:30 this morning, after taking these beautiful photos, Colby, Parker, Reed and I spent the better part of an hour pulling toilet paper out of our trees and bushes, cleaning it off all the vehicles, and stuffing it into four large garbage bags. Since we found the wrappers, I am confident that the paperers used 48 double rolls of toilet paper in their quest for decorative domination. At least we can be comforted by the fact that they did not scrimp. I thought the draping of the fence was really quite well done and the paper that is stuck on the roof attests to a strong throwing arm, so I think they should get an A for effort.
