ALWAYS..... PUT AWAY YOUR ALWAYS



My mother would laugh ... payback always comes full circle!

This morning, I went into our bathroom on the main floor. I absently left a full new package of pantyliners on the counter (sorry guys; but it is what it is). I wasn't even thinking. Yes I could have undid the child safety lock and put them in the cabinet. OR I could be lazy, throw them on the counter to worry about them later.

Turns out later is when you happen by the bathroom and see the light on. You peek inside to see who is using the facilities, and instead find HALF the bag of Always has been un-done and pantyliners are stuck on your wall or on your bathroom mirror!! Not to mention the nifty little pre-packaged wipes they now put on the wrappers are collected in a neat pile in the bathroom sink! I had to laugh; because if I had not noticed it; 15 minutes later Kierra's therapist probably would have! How do you explain approximately 10 pantyliners stuck in your bathroom? A decorative muse? A political statement: I am a woman and I get a period; and I'm not ashamed! Or that you are just lazy and didn't bother to put them away, and that's what happens when your autistic child finds them sitting there.

The reason why I said "full circle" in the begining of my post is I did the EXACT same thing when I was about Kierra's age. My mom came into her bathroom to find me with them stuck all over my outfit and two in my hair! So apparently maxi-pad fashion is hereditary. Maybe we should just stick to Playtex?

And panty liners are my muse as well...I seem to lose them in my bed and find them again on my husbands leg hairs...don't laugh..it happened.

They are like big stickers.

Hmm...no interesting happenings with panty liners, but once when I fell down and hit my head on the edge of the countertop (no, I wasn't into the pitcher of Margaritas), Bing took me to the ER and on the way there, I realized that I was holding a maxi pad on my head! She gave me this look and said, "Well, it WORKS, doesn't it?"

It sure did...

I read an email (not sure if true or not) about someone accidently sending tampons to an all male unit of the marines who were deployed to war zone. They would put them in each other's gear as a joke and then one day they came across some wounded and someone got the smart idea to put a tampon in the bullet hole... Tampons and pads are handy little things... LOL :)
(your story is why i keep mine on top shelf of those bathroom organizers that sit above the toilets. one toss and they are put away)
