Its really hard to forget when my birthday is, and sometimes I wish I would… I would rather it be like ” oh wait what day is it, oh crap my birthday was yesterday! lol”
But nope nope there is a swarm of birthdays in my family in april and as they pass I feel like we’re counting down to mine. worst is there are 3 birthdays right before mine that live with me. April 23 grandma, 26 grandpa, 27 mom, and last of the month, me 29th.
Usually we have a group dinner and we all share a cake on my birthday. To be honest I feel really weird, it makes me feel awkward…
Worse of all they try to pry what I want and then I end up with something I don’t even like. EX: mom “so what do you want for your b-day?” me ” oh nothing, how bout a book or a gift card ” I end up with makeup….. I don’t even like make up……
Don’t get me wrong I love their Birthdays and my own, they just turn out so lame. I rearly get to see the people I would want. Last weekend I could have had a great pre birthday event in the form of a water balloon fight but sadly I had to bail.
HOW TO MAKE AN EMERGENCY PAD The tampon vending machine is out of order and there are no paper towels left in the dispenser. What’s more, you used the emergency pad you carry in your purse when your period arrived early LAST month. The school nurse’s office is closed and your girlfriends are as ilI-prepared as you are. What to DO?
Use these steps to fashion a sturdy, dependable pad that should at least get you through that second-period exam.
1. In the bathroom mirror, spot-check for telltale signs of your unexpected visitor. If some stains are showing, plan to tie a jacket or sweater around your waist until you can change clothes.
2. Find a stall with toilet paper (TP) and lock yourself in. Either sitting or standing, pull your underwear down to your knees and, using dry TP, blot the blood that’s already made its debut.
3. Wrap the end of the TP roll six or seven times around your hand until you feel the “pad” is thick enough. Remove your hand carefully and place this wad in your underwear, making sure to cover the part with the bloodstains, since it’s obvious your period is flowing in that direction.
4. Remove a lengthy, intact piece of TP (about 10 squares) and place the end of it on top of the left side of your new pad. Wrap it underneath your underwear toward the right side, bringing it around and around until the paper ends.
5. Repeat step 4 with another piece of paper. Feel free to wrap farther up to get more coverage and protection from shifting.
6. Carefully tuck the final end underneath, as you would a wrapped bandage, and pull your underwear up. Feel to make sure you’ve covered all potential leak opportunities. Then get dressed again.
Voila! You’ve just saved yourself the worry of having a bloody piece of TP fall down your leg; this baby is immovable! There should be a Girl Scout badge awarded for this!
