If necessity is the mother of invention, my wife is her sister. It's well known in our family and circle of friends that I am not particularly handy. Where my wife is pretty much wears the tool belt in our house, I wear the apron. I worked in kitchens for years, and she fixed things. I love it this way. It works for both of us.

This morning, in the middle of doing the morning show, she comes busting into my studio, laughing. We ran out of tissues, and aren't due for a store trip for a minute, so we've been using a rogue roll of toilet paper. But apparently, she had grown frustrated with it rolling all over the kitchen, so she decided to fix that pesky issue.

So really, I gotta give mad props to K Stew for solving our overwhelming problem of runaway toilet paper.

Even in the form of a stickssue box.
