The Perfect Shower Gift?


This is a Birth Control Pill Case, with alarm.

The red script on the packaging says, "When Timing is Everything."
Now, what I'm wondering is, just who was the target demographic for this item?

Because what this item says to me is:
"Don't forget again, you previously errant uterus."
Of course, this particular dollar store stocks only the finest deeply offensive products.

I like the idea of an errant uterus. Like knights of old, it rides forth on its trusty steed, ready to do justice. If only it didn't look damn silly trying to wear a little helmet.

See, I took the alarm to be the kind of thing you'd want to have if you were worried that someone else was going to hone in on your stash of estrogen.

The progesterone only pills have to be taken w/only a four hour window of a 24 hour day - so maybe it's for that???
But most people take the estrogen/progesteron combo pills - and you could miss them by a much bigger window.
Although I had a friend who took them by the alarm on her watch and still got pregnant.
But I have to say, that is funny as hell, just the thought of marketing that damn thing!! I shouldn't think so much on it, ha! Very hilarious, you find the funniest things,,
Have a great holiday, sweet lady!!

I'm very confused by all of this. Where does that thing go? No wait, I don't want to know.

That sounds like something I'd buy someone for Christmas.

Cause I'm a sucky gift giver.

Happy Thanksgiving.

If you need one of those pill cases, Manion, justice ain't the only thing you're doing.

True, Amanda, we do have to keep vigilant on that score.

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to not conceive, Julie. :)

Go ask Kelly the Eliza, Wiggy.

Well, Eric, at least you're honest.
