Lessons Learned

August 2, 2008

Apart from my genius cold water method, I have learned 2 other very important lessons from the triple-digit temperatures that have plagued our area.  My lessons are not for the faint of heart, or men in general.  Consider yourselves warned:

1.  Maxi pads and 100 degree days don’t mix.  Your pad will fill up with sweat in about 2 minutes, leaving no place for your monthly discharge to go. 

2.  A & D ointment is great for when your panty line is rubbbed raw.  However, it smells like ass and ensures that you will have no hopes of any romantic involvement.

    aaaahahahaa! Oh . my . goodness!
    So true, Alyson, so trueeeee!
    Those two things are awful .. I know what you speak of, Woman ! I have experienced both.

    Now I don’t use pads (I use the Diva Cup….check it out, oh my god, it’s a BLESSING), but I so know the rubbed raw panty line thing.
    You sweat, it sticks, it pulls, it rubs, it’s raw and not very lovely.

  3. Alyson Says:

    @ Red: They both are awful. I will always make sure I have plenty of tampons on hand from now on.

    @ talea: I don’t usually use them either, but I happened to be out of tampons. I have heard alot of praise about the diva cup and intend to try it soon.

    @ jenefur: Thanks!

  4. Hilarious! Someone should invent an A & D scented body spray that we can douse our daughters with until they turn 25 or so. Teen pregnancies would be cut in half!

  5. Allison Says:

    Yowzer. The heat index should not be so bad that you know these things. I’m so over August already.

    Oh man! These are not good times my friend! For your sake I hope the temps lower quickly.

  7. Alyson Says:

    @ moonbeam: LOL! Great Idea. I have a teenage boy I would like to douse in something like that.

    @ Allison: Me too. I have a new appreciation for a/c.

    @ bluesuit: I second that.

  8. Alyson Says:

    Yeah. I cant’ wait for fall.
