This Husband Was Just Trying To Help, But What He Used To Make Dinner Has Women Everywhere Cringing
We’ve all been in a situation where we needed a measuring cup and didn’t have one. Normally you can get by using a different cup, eyeballing it, and you’ll get more or less the amount you were looking for. A cup is a cup is a cup, after all. Except, when it’s that kind of cup.
Cindy Hobbs, a busy entrepreneur and mother of Victoria, Australia, was in the kitchen when she came across something...disturbing. She immediately snapped a photo and sent it to her husband to get down to the bottom of things.
As you can see, that’s a bag of rice. But what’s that inside? Contrary to what Cindy’s husband had assumed, that is not a measuring cup.
That's a menstrual cup.
Aw, sweetie, no. “Menstalony soup?” He’s trying so hard. But apparently not hard enough to google “menstrual” right away.
According to an interview with Scary Mommy, the couple’s toddler had gotten ahold of the menstrual cup the day before, so Cindy took it away and placed it next to the kitchen sink, out of reach of the toddler. But then she got busy and forgot it there, conveniently next to the bag of rice her husband would later use to make dinner.
Who can blame him for thinking is was a cooking tool when it was just lying there in the kitchen? Still, the thought of a menstrual cup, clean or not, being in contact with food...shivers.
