Y’all. I have purchased neither condoms nor tampons for years. YEARS. And all of a sudden, I’m in the market for both.
Let’s see… condoms first: there are so many more options. You would not – well, maybe YOU would – believe how many types and kinds and smells and textures. I was standing in Target, completely befuddled, feeling a huge blush spread across my face. I cursed my offer to buy them instead of making K pick them up. I think I made the right choice. Dude, I hope so.
And then we end up with tampons – conveniently located on the same aisle. If I thought there were a hundred varieties of condoms, I was shocked by the plethora of options when it comes to cotton. I have moved the same box of condoms across three states — only to realize that I don’t quite need the jumbo version. I ended up with something that I hope is durable and environmentally friendly. (When did I start caring about THAT? I remember in high school using plastic applicators!)
So there I am… needing both condoms and tampons. Lemme tell you, I feel like a na-tu-ral woman.
