Below is a synopsis of A Box of Tissues, 2 Rolls of Toilet Paper, and a Plastic Bottle of Water:

A famous wealthy and prestigious Tampa Bay, Florida defense attorney has been beaten, kidnapped, drugged, and thrown into a room containing only a potty chair, two rolls of toilet paper, a box of tissues, and a plastic bottle of water.

He wakes up to find his wallet and jewelry missing; his clothes are filthy and bloody. He has no idea where he is, who did this to him, or why.

The first thing he must do is to find a way to “safely” get out of this room without alarming the people who put him here, but how?

This short story describes the attorney’s situation in detail, what he did to extricate himself and turn the tables on his captors.
