“My father trolling me, circa 1981.”
Belinda Hankins is a blogger and mother of a 13-year-old girl. Her daughter had just reached an important milestone in a developing young woman’s life–the first time she had to navigate a confusing drug store layout to buy tampons. As women (and supportive husbands and boyfriends) know, drug stores are notorious for hiding tampons away in weird nooks and crannies. Belinda had to walk her daughter through an exhaustive tampon hunt until she finally found what she needed–in an unlabeled corner of the store, of course. She later shared their amazing text exchange on her Facebook page. Read the full conversation below:
“Alright. I’m the one on the left with the sweet bangs, and probable curling iron burns on my forehead. Let’s analyze this:
1. The denim. Why, Mom, why?
2. Stain on my stepdad’s knee.
3. Several excellent examples of leaning, particularly my casual elbow on my stepdad’s knee.
4. And the absolute best, my sister’s face. We are all happy to announce she isn’t a sociopath.”

“My wife is spending a week back home with her family. She sent me a picture of herself and her two sisters and mom having lunch. I responded accordingly.”
“My daughter wanted a ‘serious’ picture with her friends, but her brother photobombed it. I can’t stop laughing.”
