This post may be subject to oversharing. Oh well you get that.
It seems that every now and again that time of the month rolls around and I am unprepared. I am hopeless at preplanning and always putting it off. Don’t buy today but you can always get tomorrow. I also baulk at the $10+ it costs to ensure my comfort during those few days each month.
So roll on to last week and I was out of tampons. Texy was off to the supermarket to get milk and bread. “I need tampons” I said. The look of disdain on his face was priceless. It was similar to that of the toddler’s face when I have told him that he has been naughty. Texy realised that there was no way out, and the use of a self serve register will save him any embarrassment. “What sort?” he asked. I replied with the word R-E-G-U-L-A-R and suggested a couple of brand names and that he should not get a cheap no name brand. (Whilst we have been budget conscious I was mortified when an unknown brand of pads purchased from a German supermarket had a faulty one. The fault was it was adhesive on both sides and I was wearing it by the time I realised. Needless to say I rather not talk about that in anymore detail. However, I will suggest getting a brazilian wax by a inexperienced girl was possibly a more comfortable experience I have had).

Off he goes on his mission and I am chuckling to myself imagining him standing in the aisle making trying to find the appropriate product. I know I have stood there myself long enough confused studying the different types and the apparent benefits each offers.
Little did I know the joke was on me. He returned home with the SUPER version. I don’t so super. As you may know this is a larger version that the REGULAR I had requested. I made a comment but was quick to shut my mouth. Texy understandably wasn’t understanding. I think in some way he thought that Super would be better. So karma is a bitch and now I am stuck with about 10 of the ill fitting expensive little blood suckers. I did use a few but must remember to ensure I get the correct version before the next cycle is upon me.

Do you have any experiences when you have entrusted someone to buy your personal hygiene products? Texy suggests I am lucky that he does this for me. Am I?
