Another one for the books



I am now truly convinced you can find ANYTHING on the web...I mean anything...and 5000 variations of said thing should you need it. People, before I begin this silly story I just searched Flickr for the word "Tampon" and no less than 7 pages of photos came up. I have never thought to photograph anything remotely close to anything related to personal hygiene. 7 pages...I don't know whether this is brilliant or sick, I'll have to get back to you on that one.

So with "Tampon Man" being my lead into this little tale, this will just complete the picture of Moi who falls on her face regularly, trips, ignores old high school crushes when needed and I'm sure I've walked around with my skirt tucked into something- at some point. It's just the way my life goes. "Cute but requires a crash helmet" is one term that has been used to describe me.

I went to coffee the other morning like I always do and the sweet boy of 20 who waits on me regularly asks my order and I'm fumbling with my wallet. I pull, said wallet out, lay it on the counter and look down a few minutes later and what is wedge in it but a lovely "girl plug". I don't know how long I had been holding my wallet, I don't know if it was waving hello!! to my 20 yr old friend or not. If it was, he ignored it well. This is not the first time this is happened. I have flung these little buggers across the counter at my coffee kids. I think it's official that I need to zip these suckers up and avoid future issues.

Why am I telling you this? Because I'm sure you need a good laugh...I just thought I would humor you with more tales of embarrassment.

haha.. let me share with you my tampon story which isn't so much my story but my brothers...!

i have a green napsack i take around me with everywhere, it's my life line. and one day, my brother asked if he could borrow it for school because his ripped. needless to say, i said yes and we went our separate ways.

that night my brother comes home totally mortified! he throws my bag at me yelling "I'm never borrowing anything from you again!" - totally confused by this irrational behaviour i ask him what happened and why he was so angry and he begins to tell me his story...

apparently, during class a friend of his asked if he could borrow a pen and without thinking, my brother searches my bag for a pen. he came around the side of the bag with his hand and felt a long slender stick like thing ... thinking it was a pen he opened the small side pocket it was in, reached in without thinking or looking and handed it to his friend.

you guessed it ... that long slender thing was not a pen rather one of my tampoons which he pulled out of what others believed to be HIS bag and passed it over to his friend!

lol ....
