You know how some stories are just better told in person? Well this might be one but I am going to give it a shot anyways.
While at a Junior League function the other night I experienced a funny tale from suburbia. The function was held a a little boutique on our side of town, which it's no secret that its a very WASP type community. A friend was buying these cute little tin's that hold tampons and they have 40's pin up girls on them.
Click her to see these cute little tampon holders!
My friend "K" wanted to get one for a African American friend's going away gift. We looked for a tin with an African American girl on it but go figure there were none. "K" and I giggled and she asked the boutique sales girl if they had any. Rather just just saying no she frantically searched around and looking in the back and finally reemerged to say " oh sorry I think we are sold out". "K" busted out laughing and said "Bull Shit" I had to laugh as well; it was funny. It was so obvious that they never had any black pin up girl tins. It was obvious it was her first request for any type of African American product! No Really we must be sold out!
Hope that was as funny as it was in real life!
