A commercial for a pad that promises ‘super fast absorption’ is on.
Mark: Ha. How on earth do you define ‘super fast absorption’? Are they timing it?
Me: Yeah. I guess my real question is why are they using that liquid to represent period blood?
Mark: Please stop.
Me: I mean, it’s not even really very liquid like, ya know?
Me: There’s like tissue and blobs and it’s just not very realistic to compare it to liquid.
Mark: I’m sorry for bringing it up. I just wanted to talk about absorption. I’m sorry.
