Now we all know how it feels, when the, as I call it, ‘red dragon’ comes to visit and you are NOT prepared. It is horrible, and you find yourself rushing to either the nearest bathroom, or after the nearest bathroom, to the nearest petrol station or chemist to purchase your choice of reconciliation. So just imagine that firstly, you are out in the middle of nowhere. Secondly, you are camping (and no, NOT ‘glamping’) and thirdly the nearest petrol station is 20 minutes away and only stock jumbo tampons!
Yes, this happened to me last weekend and Modibodi, quite literally, saved my life and my sanity.
So last weekend, we all road tripped to a far out location for a music festival that my other half’s band was playing in. The other girls and I all thought why not? Life is about experiences, right? So, as we start getting closer to the festival, my close friend looks at me, with that face (ladies, we all know that face) and lets me know that her best friend, the red dragon, has paid her a visit. Here I am thinking, “Ahh, that’s horrible, I would hate that!” Yes, I spoke to soon.
As said before, the petrol station only had incredible, jumbo tampons, which, now let’s be real here, are not exactly comfortable. Now, we arrive at our destination only to find delightful portable toilets and cute little tents. I’m sure you can already tell that camping is not my all time favourite thing to do. Like at all. (No offence to those who love camping.) I decide that I simply cannot hold it in anymore and start my trek towards the dreaded ‘porta-potties,’ and as that sense of relief comes over me and I am over joyed that I have now conquered my ‘porta-potte’ fears, I realise. Yes. Hello red dragon! Well, how nice of you to pop by!
I died a little inside. Jumbo tampons. That was my fate. Really? REALLY!? And then, It came to me. I remember packing my favourite pair of Modibodi’s in my overnight bag. I love wearing my Modibodi’s, at any time of the month as I just find them so comfortable and really pretty too. The ones I had on hand were my Sassy Cheekini’s. My all time favourite’s.
So I slipped them on and that was that. There my friend was absolutely dying and there I was as if nothing had even happened. As if the red dragon did not exist. Take that red dragon! It was incredible and I felt safe, secure, comfortable and so good the entire day! My Cheekini’s worked like a dream! When I got home, I simply said my thank you’s and popped them into the wash. They are now clean and ready to go again!
Yay for Modibodi!
