Tell All Tuesday: Here, Use THIS Pen!

In high school one of my BFFs was a male. He sat behind me in a couple of classes. We were taking a midterm, no talking or getting out of your desk allowed, and he had the unfortunate mishap of his pencil point breaking. Oh the dilemma!

He whispered to me that his point broke and wanted to know if I had a pen or pencil he could borrow. Without looking I reached into my Mary Poppins purse grabbed the first “pen” my hand touched and handed it over my shoulder to him.

“I CANNOT WRITE WITH THAT!” He exclaimed. I pulled my hand back and realized that I was handing him a plastic unused tampon that in the shuffling had come out of the wrapper in my purse.

I do not know who turned a brighter shade of red.
