In which my life is like a "Seinfeld" episode

For those of you who have said my blog is "introspective" this is for you. If there are any men reading, you may want to stop here.

Well, it's that time of the month. So I open up my box of Tampax (told you, men! There's still time to stop!) and find that they have changed. And I hate the new version. Really hate it. So I have been considering what to do about that - switch brands, write to the company, etc. Today I stopped by Target to get some Odor Eaters for my son who is becoming a man and has all the smells that go along with that. While I was there I spotted it...The old variety of Tampax! And on sale to boot!! So I grabbed up every single stinkin' box of the jumbo size (which was really 4, but it sounds much more dramatic to say "every single stinkin' box," don'cha think?). And I'm going back later to get more. Which brings us to the title of this lovely little post which shares too much information. Remember the "Seinfeld" in which Elaine's preferred method of birth control, The Sponge, was discontinued and she bought out the entire city's stock? And then using them was hard because it was one less and she could never get them again. That's what I feel like. Who knew one could feel so attached to a feminine hygiene product?

I promise to be back to my introspective self in my next post.

LOL!! How did they change them? Seinfeld was an awesome show. There are so many great episodes. Loved the Can you Spare a Square. LOL

I liked the binder idea. I need to do something like that. I'm going to follow that link a little later when I get the chance.

I hate when they change or discontinue products. DH and I are "convinced" that companies must find out we like something so they discontinue it. My favorite shampoo (Burt's Bees Dr. Burt's Herbal Treatment Shampoo) was discontinued. I found a place online who still had some, so I bought TEN bottles. I don't know what I will do when I use them all up.
