Dad: Hey I’m gonna go grocery shopping do you need anything?
Me: contemplates whether or not I should ask him to get me pads since I need them desperately.
Dad: Anything at all?
Me: Uh… Yeah… Can you get me some pads?
Me: Are you serious? Wouldn’t you be embarrassed?
Dad: Natalie, I’m a 56 year old man who has been buying pads for your mother for over 20 years. No I’m not embarrassed.
Me: But I thought guys get squeamish when we ask them to buy this stuff for us.
Dad: Boys are squeamish. Men will step out and buy you as many pads and tampons as you need. A man will understand that you cannot control your cycle and that this is a natural bodily process. So, if you ever find a guy who’s too embarrassed to buy your pad, just bleed on everything he owns.
Me: OMG DAD!!
