Why I love my husband

My husband is the one who does most of the grocery shopping in our home. Since he's got severe food allergies, he knows what he can and can't eat. So it's just more convenient for him to do than me.

Luckily for him, this means he gets to do all my shopping too...for things like female necessaties and such. He's such a good sport...especially last night, when I came home late from a funeral and forgot to pick up some pads on the way home.

He gave me that look that left no room for interpretation and got his keys. I was getting my son ready for bed, while my husband ran to Walgreens. He needed a few toiletries for himself too, so it wasn't all in vain.

Afterward successfully getting my son tucked in, I walked to my room to get ready for bed. I walked in the bathroom and picked what I expected would be normal KOTEX maxithins, except it wasn't KOTEX at all. I softly hollered into our room, "Hey what's this?"

"Oh. I couldn't find your normal brand, so I bought the Walgreens brand."

Nodding my head to myself, I thought..."Okay no biggie. I'll use their brand.""

Well imagine my surprise when I take one out of it's package. It looked a little big to be a normal maxi.
"Okay...maybe it's an overnight?!" I thought and proceeded to set it where it goes.

I walked out of the bathroom and felt unusually protected. I felt usually odd. It prompted me to walk back into the bathroom and thoroughly inspect the branded packaging.

It read: Discreet Bladder Control

I laughed my head off. No wonder he couldn't find my regular brand! He wasn't even on the right aisle....LOL!

I asked him if he read what he bought. He said he saw the word PADS and that was it! So as I had no alternatives last night, I used what he bought and felt weird the whole night through.

My silly husband is one of a kind and I wouldn't trade him for the world. He even told me that when he bought them...he firmly set them in front of the cashier and said, "I love my wife!"
