Awkward moment of the day.

After arriving back at school, I went to the store to get some last minute things.  Right after I grabbed a box of tampons, I ran into one of my pre-schoolers.  I had a whole conversation with him and his mother while holding nothing but the box of tampons.

I once had to wait in line behind a student and her mother at Costco, with nothing in the basket but a case of beer and the ginormous box of tampons they sell there.

I spent the first five minutes hoping the student wouldn't turn around and recognize me, but she did, and so I then spent the entire ten minutes of our wait and discussion hoping neither mom nor student happened to glance in my cart.

Since they are 8th graders, I could just imagine a cocophany of phone calls whereby it was established that I was a lush who was constantly having her period. At least your preschooler would have no idea what the magic item you were holding had been designed for!

You definitely win with Costco-sized boxes of beer and tampons and a student who actually knows what beer and tampons are. That would go past awkward and hit the realm of embarrassing (for me, at least).
