Convo I just had with my dad

Dad:
hey I'm gonna go grocery shopping do you need anything?
Me:
uuuhhh....
Me:
contemplates wether or not I should ask him to get me pads since I need them desperately
Dad:
anything at all?
Me:
uh... Yeah.... Can you get me some pads
Dad:
Sure
Me:
Are you serious? Wouldn't you be embarrassed?
Dad:
Natalie, I'm a 56 year old man who has been buying pads for your mother for over 20 years. No I'm not embarrassed.
Me:
But I thought guys get squirmish when we ask them to buy this stuff for us
Dad:
boys are squirmish. Men will step out and buy you as many pads and tampons as you need. A man will understand that you cannot control your cycle and that this is a natural bodily process. So, if you ever find a guy who's too embarrassed to buy you pad just bleed on everything he owns.
Me:
OMG DAD
