I know this has been discussed before, but....

Last night, a friend of mine mentioned that she was about to start her period, and was really worried about it. (We are supposed to be going to a big formal event in 3 days. There will be dressy gowns, and limited bathrooms.)

I mentioned cups to her (Insteads to be precise, as she doesn't have time to order one), and I believe her reaction was something like, "AAAAaaaHhhhhhhHHHhaaaaggg!!!"

This made me curious... Have any of you "converted" friends or family to cups, or brought up the subject and received a positive reaction? What did you say, or how did you go about it?
