BRRRRIIINNNNGGGGG! That bell means it’s time for first period. This gURL may have ruined her favorite underwear, but at least she made a new friend! (The school nurse.)
I got mine when I was 12. I got my period in my Princess Gwenevere underwear, which was my favorite, so I was pissed. I tried to sit through the rest of the day and wait until I got home to get a pad, but it was too much. I asked to go to the nurse and I told her. Then she called my mom and acted like getting my period was the biggest deal ever. She then gave me a pad and I left. Throughout the rest of my middle school years I was in and out of that office because I always forgot pads. 😀
