Warning: Contains a very girly period story which might make some feel uncomfortable. Please stop reading and come back next week if you can’t handle it!
This is by far one of my favorite date stories.
One of my good girl friends recently started dating a really awesome guy — seriously, they are adorable together.
I hadn’t heard from her in a few days, so was a bit taken aback when she texted me this,
My initial reaction was to feel bad for her, regardless of what the situation was. Feeling embarrassed about anything isn’t fun, and she is one of the sweetest girls I know.
“Why, what’s wrong?” I replied.
“I just got my period early. It’s so messy, is all over the chair, and I am wearing white shorts! I don’t know what to say to Dave* now.”
At this point I just lost it.
Don’t get my wrong, I felt so bad for her — that is a girl’s worst nightmare — but if you knew my friend you would also know how well she handles things like this. She is kind of a rockstar, so I knew she would be fine. The mental picture of this happening was just too much.
“Oh my gosh! Does he know yet?” was my next question.
“Yes he knows; I am wearing white shorts! It is so freakin’ obvious.”
“Ugh, that is the worst. I am so sorry! I’m sure he understands, though.”
“Yeah, he does. He is going to the store to get me tampons now, but I’m still recovering from embarrassment. My face got so red!”
“That’s not the only thing that got red. ;-)”I couldn’t help it; she totally set me up for that one!
I followed up with my friend and found out that her bae not only went to the drugstore to get her feminine products, but he also bought her flowers and chocolate after seeing how embarrassed she was. I think he’s a keeper!
Today’s lesson: You should always keep an entire wardrobe in your purse — you know, just in case.
Have you ever been in a situation like this on either end? What did you do?
*Obviously I changed the name. No one wants this kind of story blasted on the Internet.
