Lunch money. Early morning meetings. Extra #2 pencils for a test. Your grandmother’s birthday (November 17.)
There are a ton of things I can imagine a person forgetting. I myself forget things a lot lately–just another happy side-effect of My Furry Little Problem.
But seriously. I don’t mean to sound judgemental, but rather to sound incredulous, when I ask
How on earth could a woman forget a tampon?
My mind is still boggled, twelve hours after reading the discussion thread with that post. More boggled yet to realise that it’s not an isolated incident.
For men who can’t relate, try this experiment. Take an entire paper towel, fold it up into as small a square as you can make, attach a three inch piece of yarn and shove it up your nose. (Or another, lower orifice if you want to be slightly more accurate.)
Now try to forget that it’s there.
I confess myself bemused.
