The man at the counter asked the older boy, “Son, how old are you?”
“I’m eight”, the boy replied.
The man continued, “This is a pack of Tampax. Do you know how these are used?”
The boy replied, “Not exactly, but they aren’t for me. They are for him. He’s my little brother. He’s just four”.
The man at the counter looked puzzled and the young boy continued.
“We saw on television that if you used these, you would be able to swim and ride a bike. He can’t do either one”.
