Why?

I admit I am a fairly modest person. Maybe that has something to do with it. I was just watching TV when a commercial for Valtrex came on. This attractive young woman says that having genital herpes can be a real drag, or something to that effect. My first thought is that it would be more than just a drag, closer to devastating probably. My second thought is: Why would anyone be in such a commercial?! I know she is getting paid for it, but there is not enough money in the world to make me get on national television and say that I have genital herpes. Honestly, I could not bring myself to be in a tampon commercial. And then there are the commercials for products designed to relieve femine itching and odor. Ugh! I really hate it when I am watching TV with my Dad and that sort of thing comes on. Silly, maybe but that is the way I am.

Anyone else out there have these hang ups?

I would rather see tampons with my Dad than erectile dysfunction products....really some things should not be said out loud in mixed company.

When I was pregnant I had a small breakout of shingles. The only safe medicine for me to take was Valtrex. Brandon was the lucky one who went by the pharmacy in our oh-so-small town and had to announce to EVERYONE that his pregnant wife HAD A CASE OF SHINGLES and needed the medicine!!! It was really funny and embarrassing to have to take "the purple pill". AMEN to modesty!
