This weekend is the weekend Ryan lives for all year long. Because this weekend is the weekend that marks the unofficial beginning of hockey season. You might be asking, “Geez, didn’t hockey just end a few months ago?” And you would be asking that right along with me. #LongestSeasonEver
Every year, Ryan heads up to Traverse City to watch the training camp for the Detroit Red Wings. And this year, he brought the whole family along for one of the practice/ scrimmage days. Fun was had by all. Well by most. Well it was mostly fun.
Anywho- the night before we stayed in a hotel and to add to the “good times had by all-ness” of it all my monthly friend arrived early. This seems to be its thing lately and it seems to happen anytime I pack a suitcase free of all feminine products. It is like the gift that keeps on giving.
So as we are all tucked into bed at the ripe old hour for 8:30 (yay for sleeping in hotels with kids!!), I sent Ryan out for some feminine products to the nearest gas station/ drug store. Why Ryan? Because I was already in my pajamas and he might have been a little scared of my mood swings.
He came back with this treasure trove and I immediately posted to Facebook to show what an awesome husband he is:
why yes, I do post pictures of my tampons on Facebook
The hubby arrived with the goods PLUS wine, chocolate and Doritos. And he earned himself one of the mini bottles of wine and a few squares of chocolate. I am a giver. And he is clearly hubby of the year.
But on Facebook and Instagram people were far more focused on the fact that he bought me generic tampons. Which I found so odd. I could care less what brand of tampons I get. I have tried them all and never noticed a single difference. Toilet paper? Only name brand will do. Tampons? I guess I just throw caution to the wind.
So inquiring minds must know. Do you buy generic feminine products? If not, what else do you insist on buying name brand?
