You know what I hate in the fashion world? More than anything? Blandness. And you know where I find blandness most problematic, most offensive, and most generally intolerable? No, not shoes or watches. Not even ties. Where I REALLY loathe blandness is in feminine hygiene products. But THANK GOODNESS: someone is finally taking a stand against bland(!!):
No, I'm not making this up (though I wish I was). I snapped a picture of this ad in my local supermarket. The caption on the bottom is a bit blurry, but you can probably make out that the major text (aside from the catchy stand/bland slogan, of course) is: "the only pad with multiple designs."
I can't tell you how many times I've been shopping at the grocery store, browsing aisle after aisle in frustration at the single-design maxi pads. I mean, one design? That's downright dowdy! Am I expected to wear shirts with only one color? Monochromatic shoes? God, no. So why should I be doomed to sport pads with only one design? Luckily for all of us, Kotex knows exactly what stylish women want. Multiple-design pads. Nothing less.
We are also advised to look for these exciting new products in the fem care aisle. Thanks for the tip, Kotex! No longer will I wander Safeway wondering why I can't find the maxi pads alongside the cereal or orange juice. I also appreciate that "Fem Care" is in a special pink font of its own. It makes me feel so, so... so womanly, somehow. Thank you, Kotex. [sniffles, dabs eyes.] Thank you.
