Inspirational Tampons, Anyone?

A beautiful, vivacious, happy woman clad in a white bikini jogging down the beach. What's the first thing that comes to your mind?


At least, that's how the marketing people at Tampax and Playtex feel. I know I feel my sexiest when I'm passing blood clots.
So how did this post come to fruition? The other evening I heard my son rifle through a drawer in our kitchen and immediately retreat to the bathroom he shares with his sister. If you have kids, you already know you can't trust a child with a permanent marker. Never. I knocked on the door, he told me he was using the bathroom and would be out in a minute. Hmm. I stood next to the door listening in. I heard the crinkling of plastic, my son's 'I'm up to no good' laugh, and then heard him spelling.


I pounded on the door again. I'm already envisioning him with homemade tatts and a penciled in Sharpie beard. Jesus take the wheel. He swung the door open, grinning from ear to ear. No handwritten tattoos, no Sharpie moustache. Whew.

Then I looked on the floor and noticed the Sharpie laying next to a basket that my daughter keeps her tampons in.

Upon further inspection, I discovered what my little Picasso had been doing.

I smell a money maker. Or maybe it's just the blood. Either way, my little genius is onto something. Ten years old and this kid may already need to apply for a copyright license. I want in on this action, because I'm business savvy enough to know this could be a payday. Not to be outdone by my miniature, I grabbed a few tampons and joined in.

So what do you guys think? Inspirational tampons; would you buy them? Is my son going to be a tampon mogul? Stay tuned!

Linking up with these lovely ladies:
