For some, it’s going to be a snap; others may think this is some strange relic, or perhaps even a hoax, not a real thing at all, sort of like Bigfoot.

Make no mistake, it’s very real and it’s very scary. Sometimes, it’s even infuriating.

I found this specimen in my very own home! Imagine that! Something this disgusting, this frightening, this horrific lurking just down the hall from where my children and I sleep!

It caught me unawares as I sat peacefully in my home, then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw it and I screamed. Fortunately, I keep the bane of this oh-so-unpleasant beast always at hand and I was quickly able to tame the thing.

By now, I’m sure some of you are laughing, or perhaps simply shaking your head at my attempt at humor. Others are scouring that picture looking for a tiny spider, a speck of mouse poop, or some other sign of an unwelcome visitor.

I’m telling you, this beast is a common and frightening thing, and it never fails to make me want to hunt down the perpetrator and sentence them to a month of scrubbing toilets with an old toothbrush.

Yep, it’s the empty toilet paper roll. Grrrrr…
