Ox in the Mire

My ox was in the mire this afternoon, i.e. feminine supplies were a must. And even though I am supposedly this mature medical professional there is still something about buying your own tampons that's awkward. Maybe its because they still ask you whether you want paper or plastic. Hello? Take a look at me. I am standing in the middle of the grocery store still wearing high heels. Do I look like I give a damn? But yes, I'll take paper please. You can't just buy tampons by themselves though. That's weird. So I bought two Snicker's bars and another purple plant. When I came out and John saw my bag and newly added member of the family he laughed and laughed.

Me: I don't get it.
John: You bought Snickers and tampons. I thought you were trying to make it LESS obvious.

I recall one morning i was feeling really ill, but I couldn't just send my companion on to the store alone. So i accompanied him to the store and grabbed the items i needed. As i walked up to the counter, the woman behind all happy and bright says "Would you like to buy a fresh donut!" and thrusts them into my face. I probably made a bigger show of tossing the Pepto-bismol on the counter than i needed too, but i was sick and really annoyed. If i could, i would always have someone else to go to the store for me, so i understand.

chocolate + tampons= neon sign saying "Menstrating monster approaching!"

Hahaha. Sorry I shouldn't laugh but we have all been there and done that, and do so on a monthly basis. It is kind of hard on the whole diet routine. And Jessie you stole that quote from the LDS version of Pride and Prejudice.

When I have my own kingdom, women will not be subjected to the visit from "aunt clara' every month. Recently I told Fred. Today is not a good day for being a woman!! He is a good sport and he is great about going to the store and getting the goods for me At first I had to do the show and tell with the right colored box and detailed list. Now he is an expert at it. That is a great husband!
