    So, women get their cycle pretty much like clockwork, every 28 days.

    Yet, somehow it always catches them by surprise and SOMEONE has to make a late night dash to the 24 hour Walgreens for supplies.

    I don't get it. :dunno:

    If I got such a thing every 28 days, there would be a tampon storage facility constructed at my home. Climate controlled and, once annually, the Stayfree truck would back up my driveway and deliver a 1 year supply of tampons.

    Further, I would have forward stocked enough for at LEAST an additional 6 months of supplies in various locations throughout the house, with some in fire and flood proof containers.

    Can someone explain it to me or is it the same set of X chromosome genes that allows them to drive inexplicably long distances with the "Low Fuel" light illuminated on their dash?

    Yep.

    I hide them and stash them all over the house so I don't have to make a nighttime tampon run. She still finds them, uses the spares and freakin runs out.

    My wife is one of the most orderly, organized structured people you'll ever meet.

    Just cannot bear to have enough tampons though.

    I am right their with you on this one. I can't tell you how many times I have told my wife it is something you are going to use and need, why buy a small box and panic when you don't have any left.

    :dunno:

    I dated a chick once when I was younger for 5 years she got her period about once every 4-5 months... but then again she never got pregnant either.

    They send you out on the tampon quest as a test. HH

    If men had periods, the cardboard applicator would be replaced with carbon fiber and the pon would be launched with compressed air at the least.

    Maybe their memory is affected by blood loss?

    THIS! :rofl: It's such a pity that tampons and ammo aren't both looked upon with the same amount of urgency and planning!

    Thankfully, my wife is pregnant so I'm sitting out of that game for the next few innings.

    I have three women in my house.

    I keep extra supplies on hand for all of them. It's not that complicated.

    Never trust anything that can bleed for 5-6 days and still live.

    :rofl: Costco...the big box. Yep. We have three girls (and me) in my house. Imagine the drama and tampon expenditures in ten years. *shudder*

    So, if she says go pick me up some heavy flow pads...some .45 ACP and a few boxes of 9mm, it would all be cool?

    Well, one could at least salvage a little dignity at the checkout register.

    And Walgreens stocking ammo? How cool would THAT be!
