I quote Bob's Burgers more than is strictly necessary, but is still within the realms of justification. So you know that now...

Is so pretty! How Paul doesn’t talk about this place all the time after visiting his family in Buenos Aires I just don’t understand.

Having to run to the Business Office to pick up some checks, I blindly grabbed my keys out of my purse and headed into the conference room, where a big meeting was taking place, to let my boss know I was heading out for a few. As I turned around to leave I dropped something from my hand, and thinking it was just my keys I started to bend down, loudly noting how much of a klutz I was. But it wasn’t my keys. It was a tampon. I had grabbed a tampon out of my purse, not my keys.
I tried to act like a grown adult woman and just pick it up while laughing it off like, “Oh, this. Hahaha! Why yes, that is a tampon. I’m an adult female. It is only natural for me to carry these around as I, like most woman, have a period. It is just a part of life and nothing at all to be embarrassed about.”
Of course that is not what happened. No, instead I stood there in a half-bent position, ass in the air in the doorway to the conference room, while I stared at my tampon laying out in the open for everyone to see. Realizing that everyone who had turned around to look at me when I entered the conference room were still facing me while most likely wondering how I manage to get dressed in the morning when I can’t even tell the difference between a set of keys and a tampon I picked up my embarrassment and headed out the front door. Only later realizing my keys were still inside in my purse.
