Have a Happy .

(first a note to my brother-in-law: you may want to skip this entry since it involves a whole bunch of words you do not want to think about with regards to your sister-in-law)

----------------------------------------

Last night, as I was about to put on an Always Ultra Thin pad (I blame the toxic shock scare of 1980 for my fear of wearing a tampon to sleep), I noticed some writing on the little piece of paper you pull off to expose the adhesive strip.

On this paper was written: "Have a Happy Period" (along with the lovely sounding, "Bonne et heureuse semaine.").

What an odd little greeting! I wasn't sure if I should be flattered that Always would care so much that I have a happy one, or concerned that I never seem to have a happy one, no matter what. Oh, yes, I do remember those days when the arrival of my period was met with great sighs of relief and a promise to "never, ever do that again", but I can't say that I ever had a happy period.

Is this a way for Always to build brand preference? "I'll only buy the brand that wishes me a happy period because maybe, by golly, I'll have one someday!"

Or maybe I'm missing something. Do the rest of you regularly have happy ones?

I must be doing it all wrong.

FOM, I would guess that those "Happy periods" are the one's following the prayer, "please let me get my period, please let me get my period"
That is when its a "Happy Period" vs a complete and total DRAG!

Personally, I find it a bit invasive. Sort of like the toilet paper I saw in the UK once that said "don't forget to wash your hands". Some moments are just meant to be private.

Delurking from Israel. Love your blog.

Sounds like a Hallmark opportunity. Next month, I'll send you a card: Wishing you less cramps and no desire to kill your husband. Remember, just go with the flow! Love, me.

modmom, OMG menopause scares the daylights out of me. I doubt I'd find any products with "Have a Happy Menopause" on them! I'm afraid all the hormonal swings will make me more insane than I am normally!

Moe calls pads diapers and tries to wear them.

And, um, it's OK to wear a tampon to bed. I have for the last 15+ years. As long as it's not longer than 8 hours straight, and be honest, when was the last time you slept 8 hours in a row?

And do Always still have that weird moisture-lock cover on them? I wore them once and I thought I put the sticker side up. Ow-ways.

That's it. I'm starting a blog about flatulence, 4x4s, and male pattern balding. :-)
