A MAN is making a good recovery after buying tampons for his girlfriend.
27-year-old Andrew Greening had to face his fears when girlfriend Melanie Harrison asked him to ‘pop to the shops’ for her.
Greening said: “When Mel unexpectedly got her period, I was scared but it was also an opportunity to show her what an enlightened guy I am. So I went all the way to Tesco, like a total hero.
“It took me a while to find the tampons, as they weren’t in the nappy aisle as I’d expected. When I found them, I immediately wished I hadn’t. Nobody told me there were so many different types of tampons. It’s a trap.”
He added: “Was I meant to get her Super Plus to show her I think she’s awesome? Or would she think I think she has a giant hoo-ha?
“What, in the name of god, are those drop thingies? Are they tears? Was I meant to choose one according to how sad she’s feeling?
“And what’s an ‘anti slip grip’? Would she think I’m a cheapskate if I didn’t get it for her? The whole thing was a minefield. Ultimately I made a random choice which in itself was an extraordinary effort.”
Harrison added: “Yeah, he’s like Indiana Jones.”
