The unexpected happenings

On Monday during our morning bathroom break I stand in the hall wondering "what is taking my girls so long?" Then, "B" came out and whispered, "um, "D" needs a pad". To not draw attention I asked another female student to go with "B" to get a pad from the clinic.

When they came down the hall I noticed that it was wrapped in a brown paper towel Haha. I walked towards them and "B" handed it to me and I hid it in my sweater's sleeve and walked into the bathroom.

When "D" came out I had a side chat with her a little later to see if she wanted to call her mom. Me, "D, how are you doing?"...she rubs her tummy and said "it hurts." "Was this your first time?"... "uh huh". "would you like to call your mom?"... "no it's ok, but thank god its a short day. The pad is really thick"...I just wanted to hug her or give a big HIGH FIVE and say "welcome to the club".

FLE rears its ugly head even before we teach it!!!! hahahah

Last year a similar situation happened to me while I was interning. I didn't really bring it up to the student, but she came up to me at recess and said "This thing feels like a pillow between my legs! I can hardly walk!"
