Sure, I know you love her, but there are some articles that just write themselves, and this being a hot button issue will do just that as well as cause more drama. I think it’s good though… crying for women is like pissing for men, if you don’t do it every hour you may kill a guy for stealing your lip gloss.
I think, like a lot of other things, that when you are picking a mate there are some things that can tell you a lot about them. For instance: do they take cream in their coffee? Do they like sports? (if male) Do they pee standing up? (if female) Does she know which way is north?
With some of these questions lies the very topic of this article, buying feminine products. Some would argue that “it’s a noble thing to do for the one you love”, um no… opening the door for her is a noble thing, giving her your coat when it’s cold outside is a noble thing. Going into a grocery store only to have the following happen to you is far from noble!:
A lady picked up several items at a discount store.¬†When she finally got up to the check out, she learned that one of her items had¬†no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the clerk got on the intercom¬†and boomed out for the entire store to hear, ‚ÄòPRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE.” That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the¬†store apparently misunderstood the word ‘Tampax’ for ‚ÄòTHUMBTACKS.‚Äô In a¬†businesslike tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom: ‚ÄòDO YOU WANT THE¬†KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND IN WITH A HAMMER?
Now this seems like it could be rare and ‘ok’ maybe so, but on the off chance that it might happen I would just walk out. I would rather bare my own ass to my mother than take that embarrassment. (pun intended).
So what does it say that I will not go and buy feminine products for my wife? Well, since I have been saying it before I even met my wife, for 12 years in fact, I think it is an answered prayer… which makes me a man of prayer, which is marriage material if you ask me!
