I’ve been lucky enough to contract COVID-19 twice in the last six months and have gone through many, many tissues as a result. I generally use LastTissue reusable tissues but my honker has been doing so much honking that my single box of cloth tissues couldn’t keep up.
For my paper tissues, I have used a very ridiculous tissue box cover I bought at a thrift store. It is shaped like a cat. Here it is next to my actual cat, Licorice Allsorts. And no, it is not an enormous tissue box cover — Licorice Allsorts was less than a pound when this was taken!
You might see that amazing cat-shaped tissue box holder and wonder what would lead me to look for a bookish tissue box holder. Clearly I was already the owner of the perfect tissue box holder! Indeed, I once thought like you. I had two grumpy old cats who would only sneer at the new tissue holder cat and everyone lived in harmony.
Then we got Licorice Allsorts. She was quick to find every ribbon, whisker, and dangling spot on that poor tissue box holder. Our unfortunate tissue box is no longer, and it is now time to find the best bookish tissue box holder in the world. Hopefully COVID will leave me alone, but in case it doesn’t, I need plenty of boxed tissues to take on the ever-running nose honks.
