Feminine Hygiene

The husband and I had lunch at the grocery store today. I know that sounds weird, but Reasor's is our go-to spot when we can't agree on anything else, so we usually eat there around 3 times a week. Anyway, it worked out perfectly that we ate there today since I needed to pick up some feminine products...that way we could actually kill two birds with one stone.

Here is the conversation between the husband and I that ensued from the Tampon aisle....

him: Are you scared to buy tampons?
me: No. I'm 31 years old.
him: Well, do not get that (generic) brand. They might make you sick.
me: K. Fine. I'll get the expensive ones.
him: K. Let's go.
me: No, hang on. I'm not done yet.
him: What? You need maxi pads too? I thought only 80-year-olds wear maxi pads.
me: No. These are panty liners.
him: What are they for?
me: Protection.
him: Oh for overflow?
me: Sure.
him: Do you need a plastic shoe-box to keep all of these in? (I gave him a look). Are you gonna put some of your new tampons and maxi pads in your purse?
me: Probably, but they're not maxi pads. (I opened the box to show him how thin they are).
me: You can't say that's "maxi" anything.
him: Flat screen tvs are getting thinner and thinner too aren't they?

I'm not sure I understand the logic there, but I always think it's funny to hear guys talk about "that time of the month."

Hope you had a great weekend, everyone!

Hahahahaa. Found you through Tammy. And I may have just peed my pants. Thank you for that. Boo is still antsy with them.
