My first period came in the 7th grade when I was 12. I was in 6th hour art, working on our magazine projects when I felt IT coming.
I got up and told my art teacher, who is a women, what had happened and asked her if I could be excused to get a pad from the nurse. But she didn't understand me at first. I asked quietly, since there were only three more girls in class and the rest were boys, and she said rather loudly, "What, what do you need? A pad?".
Apparently people had heard her because one girl had her mouth opened and nearly all the guys, (Including one I had liked at the time) we're trying hard not to laugh, although a few weren't very sucessful. My art teacher relized what I had been talking about and handed me a pass.
My cheeks burned the whole way to the nurses office
