re: No Shame

Confession: I just bought a box of opened tampons at the thrift store. I don't think it is a big deal ... the box was opened, but all the tampons are individually wrapped, you know? It was an almost full box of 40, and totally my brand, for just $.69, so I really couldn't pass it up. There was really nothing wrong with them, so I like to think that some dude probably donated them after his girlfriend moved out and he found them under the sink or something.

But you know how some people get a little embarrassed just at the idea of buying tampons in the first place, even in a nice clean supermarket? Now think about buying an opened box of them in a thrift store. I guess I really do have no shame.
