On the not-so-sly
I was in school when I just started my period. I got a pad from the nurse, but they were thick and uncomfortable (I usually use ultra thin). So to get a more comfortable pad, I slyly (or so I thought) asked all the girls in my class if they had one. Unfortunately one of the boys overheard me and yelled to the whole class, "Annie needs a tampon!" (My name is Anne.) He even shouted it out in front of the boys. Talk about embarrassing.
