As some of you know, I moved to Costa Rica in 2010. It's great! Except it is either hard to get some products or hard to get some products for a reasonable price. So, whenever I have a visitor from the US who I can use as a pack mule, I spam their home with online purchases prior to their visit. My parents (and a small funbag of assorted relations) are coming in August. Oh and relevant to this story: We're Cuban-American.

I ordered my first diva cup! Yay! I guess it came in the mail cause my mom just Facebook'd me about it:

Mom: Hey gurl!*
Me: Yoooo. What up??
Mom: diva cup! WHAAAAT?
Me: I WANT TO TRY IT BECAUSE PEOPLE TELL ME IT'S GREAT BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU STINK LESS BECAUSE TAMPONS LET IN AIR AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES YOUR VAGINA STINK AND DIVA CUPS DON'T AND YOU CAN'T GET TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME FROM IT**
It's made from magic.
Mom: oh. at first I thought it was a female condom.
Me: lol. it's a reusable menstrual cup. It's saucy. pun. intended.
Mom: I think it's a good idea for Cuba so they don't have to buy tampons or pads which are scarce and very expensive. I had never seen it, or heard about it, but I told Elena [my aunt who is a doctor in Cuba and currently visiting the US because now that she is over 60 the government doesn't care if she defects]. I'll show it to her when she comes by the house. Maybe buy a bunch and send them back to Cuba to hand out.

Hahahahaha. <3 Love her. I hope a bunch do go to Cuba!

*We're friends. She tries hard to be hip.
** I don't know if this is true.
