Am I the worst house-guest ever? I forgot my (pretty stained, but clean) Diva Cup lying on the guest room windowsill. Yes, I did.

I am new to the area, so my co-worker generously offered me a place to stay while I was in transition to a new apartment, but I don't really know her all that well. Now I've left her an object that frequently enters my vagina and is covered in my blood which I never really wanted to be seen by another person. Not exactly the first impression that I was hoping for.

This morning I wrote her a mortified email explaining that I had left my menstrual cup sunning itself in the window for de-staining and I would gladly come back to her place to deal with it if she didn't want to have to pouch it up for me and give it to me later. Hopefully she is the understanding and not easily-grossed-out type. Also, I just realized I misspelled the word "menstrual" throughout my email. FML.

I am a grown woman, but right now I don't feel very mature...

Good news! My dear hostess was very understanding, and not totally grossed out. She hadn't heard of cups, but she thinks her father would have loved the idea because he had to pay for disposables for 5 girls!

Good to hear! Haha! I've been telling ALL my friends. I wish I'd heard about these things sooner, because it who else HATES buying feminine supplies every single month? or that "oh crap period is here and i forgot to buy more supplies... oh damn it!" horror of horrors!
And disposables for 5 girls.... EEP!
