The Tampon Code

It happened just as it always does. Recently, I was on a trip and the group I was with needed to make a pit-stop for a bathroom break.

We cycled, we barre'd, and we consumed massive quantities of pie (and water, lots and lots of water). We hesitate to call it our best mom's night out--only because they've all been amazing and thus incomparible in their [...]
