I’ll Take a Midol With a Mojito Chaser, Stat

Spa Flo, originally uploaded by blondemom.

Clearly I am not living right, since the last thing I want to do when I have my period is don a white spa robe and get a facial. I’d like to know what she’s drinking. Green tea? An apple mojito? I’ll bet her feet are soaking, too.

I still heart Publix, though. You’ve got to love the marketing minds behind this attempt to make Aunt Flo a glamorous sort of girl who doesn’t suffer from cramps or pre-menstrual “I SAID IT’S TIME TO BRUSH TEETH!” please Lord let the girls go to bed by 9 p.m. syndrome. And I don’t have the embarrassing urge to hide this fashionable box in my cart under a jumbo bag of potato chips because it looks like a box of green tea or some soothing chamomile eye pads or something stylish and spa-like.

    I was thinking maybe those were for her eyes, not that they are puffy but… 😉 She is “spa girl!”

    One of my husband’s friends once worked for Kotex and at a Halloween party, he dressed up like the box complete with fake tampons coming out of the top. It was AWESOME. But would have been far easier if he worked for publix brand and just had to put on a robe and some green goo!
