Andrea wrote this piece about tampon marketing a while ago, but I just now found it in her archives. Since I have been lame, lame, lame at updating over here, I offer you a link to her piece as a kind of make-up gift. You know, like a little box of chocolates, or I bought you the bracelet you didn’t even know I noticed you noticing.
To put it mildly, I’ve been dealing with an overabundance of feelings. Apparently this is all very healthy and normal, and I’m handling it with the closest I can come to grace. “Grace,” for me, is crying until snot falls, flailing around my bed like an angry pre-teen, whining to any friend who will listen until he or she says the one thing they all say, “You will be okay.”
