Based on past experience I knew it was coming one day.

"I don't get it." Said d/Boy while watching the lastest Bodyform ads.

"Don't get what?" I asked (thinking please let him be referring to the rapidly changing styles of undies being flashed up on screen.)

"What those things they are advertising are actually for?"

(Bugger! Wasn't expecting to have to answer this at 4:30 on a Monday afternoon.)
So explained the whole thing to him.
"And this happens to you?"
"Hmmm .... 'K."


  1. For years my brother thought that the ads were for shoe liners - because the women were always running around and looking energetic!

    Very funny - thanks for sharing.

  2. That's a good conversation to get out of the way!

  3. and another one bites the dust! That boy has got some cool questions! I love it!

  4. I'm not sure how I got away with not having to answer that one having brought up four boys... there were plenty of other awkward questions though.

  5. At least you explained it to your son. My MIL didn't tell my husband anything - it was up to me to "educate" him...sigh. I'm so sending James to you when he comes up with those questions...roflmol.

  6. Yep, I'm waiting for that one too....everytime a tampon ad comes on the telly.

  7. Did you end it with "just be glad it doesn't happen to you you lucky lucky..."
