Tampons and Trains
Riding the train, watching the sunset, observing sleep take over our youngest, and typing on a laptop. The mountains are beautiful and the quiet hum of the train is tranquil. I can hear the Vantrap family singers singing in my head, the hills are alive with The Sound of Music ….. I just had a funny encounter with one of the train workers. A man probably in his early seventies, just came and sat next to me. He asked me, “Maam can I ask you a really personal question?” I was a bit taken back but thought, sure why not, what else do I have to do right now. He proceeded to ask me if I happened to have any of those lady products, you know feminine hygiene stuff with me packed in my bag. Apparently another lady friend on the train was in need. I wished I could help him out. Such a sweet man. Hope he found another lady friend in the next car up.
