"Why are tampons awkward?" Someone searched that phrase, and happened upon my blog.
You know, that's a very good question. I don't know that I have the right answer. Although I suppose the idea of a tampon, in and of itself, is rather awkward. So, you know, there's that.
It reminds me of the line from "Mean Girls," where the high school girl admits to getting picked on for using super absorbency tampons.
She replies with, "I can't help it that I have a heavy flow and a wideset vagina!"
