The difference between strong and soft

Anthony and I had our usual Sunday dinner and grocery shopping excursion tonight.  One thing about today that was a little different -- we're getting into the early stages of the hottest stretch of Tucson's summer, and even though we stalled a bit so it would be cooler outside, it was still 101 at 7:00 p.m. when we headed out.  But, it's a dry heat!

First, we went to dinner at Arby's near Park Place Mall on Broadway and Chantilly.  We ate in a completely empty restaurant (it happens often).  Anthony had a crispy chicken sandwich, I had a classic roast beef.  I had to dump plenty of Arby's Sauce on it.  Arby's Sauce is one of the great wonders of the world.

Grocery shopping was at Walmart Neighborhood Market at 22nd and Craycroft.  I needed toilet paper and ran into a dilemma:  Is it better to buy Ultra Soft, or Ultra Strong?  I ended up deciding on the soft, but it was a decision I wrestled over for almost ten seconds.

I also found an unusual number of products that someone picked up, then decided across the store that they didn't want anymore... so they ended up on random shelves.  I feel for the store employees, they have to put it all back where it belongs.  Anthony gives me crap, because I'm the kind of person that would go all the way across the store to put the item back where it belongs.  He tells me I'm a 'weirdo'.  Well, this weirdo sleeps well at night knowing I put stuff back in the right place.  (For the record, I was not responsible for putting the stuff you see in the photos below where they ended up... it was a completely random thing done by some other store customers).

Today's dilemma:
Do I buy Charmin Ultra Strong toilet paper....

...or do I buy Charmin Ultra Soft?
It's like deciding whether to have sex with a man or a woman.
