As I was turning in to Target, a gal in a car and I kinda got in each others' ways. We met again at the entrance, and walked in together And shortly thereafter, she turned out to be my cashier. "We meet again!" I noticed that she looked at the box of Insteads quizzically so I... well... I told her a little white lie when I said, "My friend gave me one last month and it was great. INSTEAD of a tampon..." And I pointed to the picture on the box.
She looked intrigued so as she was ringing me up, I opened the box and gave her one.
"When you get a box of your own, pass one along to someone else."
I wonder if she'll wind up here on the LJ list too???
***EDIT -- ADDED LATER:***
Looking back it seems like that's all we said. No. We had much more of a conversation than the couple of highlights I quoted. I told her of some key features and to Google them. I got the impression that she was genuinely interested and that's why I gave her one. My point was that Insteads are cheap and easy to SHARE to turn friends, family, acquaintances and occasionally even a curious stranger on to little-known methods that many of us already know and love. I wish someone had pointed me in "alternative" directions years ago.
