... yes, I know it is Saturday now but I was unsure to post this. I did not know if this is the kind of stuff anyone would want to read about or find funny or even think this is TMI so I asked for advice. And Kristi thinks it's hilarious and that I should use it. So if you don't like it please blame Kristi! ;-)
When I was younger I tried...
tampons for the first time. And my first time was a really embarrassing experience. Let me explain why.
I was 14 and on holiday with my parents on an island where I met this wonderful girl. We immediately became friends (and she is still one of my closest friends!) and "fell in love" in a BFF kind of way.
Anyway, the hotel was chock-full with English boys, most of them older than we were. Boy, we were soo enchanted by them! They were cool and really hot and we were just starting to feel the hormones of young adulthood ;-)
So one day we had a beach date with two of the boys and I was afraid I would not be able to go because I had never used a tampon but I would have needed one that day, if you know what I mean. I had used sanitary napkins so far. So I told her about my problem and she said that she had some with her and explained to me how they are used. And wow, I got it immediately and I was soo proud of myself!
Off we went to the beach with the boys and had a wonderful time there and loads of fun. There were huge waves on the beach that day which added to the fun and we jumped around in the water like crazy and, of course, my bathing suit would now and then leave its place a bit. When we finally were tired we got out of the water. Suddenly she screamed "OMG, the string of your tampon is sticking out of your bathing suit!" (of course the boys did not understand us) and I was like "WHAT?? Where is it??? Where is it??" and I started running in circles trying to find that string but I did not succeed. I am sure I looked like a dog chasing its own tail, running and running frantically after that string. I mean, there were not too many place it could be, no? And the boys who did not know what was happening looked at me like I was completely nuts. I am still so embarrassed when I think about it.
