Recently, Aunt Flo was here for her regularly scheduled visit. I'm not very fond of Aunt Flo, but she's a necessary evil. I went to the neighborhood store to stock up on supplies for Aunt Flo's arrival, but (typically) my usual brand were not available there. I ended up getting another brand that was labeled as "sport". I don't play sports, and I'm about as active as yogurt, so I wasn't really concerned with the efficacy of the "on the go" hype, but I figured they'd do in a pinch.
Imagine my surprise when I got home to find that each tampon is wrapped in a lurid green-and-purple wrapper, and is emblazoned with inspirational quotes! I know that people who are way more sporty than I are used to finding encouragement where they can, but I somehow don't think that finding "You're a triple threat...like me!" and " You still look killer in your jersey." written on your tampon is really going to push you that extra hundred miles to win the Tour de France, or to help you kick the winning goal during the World Cup. I'm just sayin'.
Am I the only one who finds this slightly disturbing?
