Till about 8-9 years ago, I had no idea what a sanitizer was. I just assumed that it was a women’s hygiene product. You know, because of the word sanitary in it.
On numerous occasions, My Gf (back then) mentioned the word sanitizer and of course it didn’t make any sense to me. But then again, I was too embarrassed to ask her about it.
Her: Instead of carrying napkins, I carry a sanitizer. It’s so much easy to carry.
Me: Ummmm… Ok….
Her: Sometimes I like playing with my sanitizer.
Me: Errrrr…. Why?
Her: Because it smells really nice…
Me: Ummmmm… Ok…
Me: Man, I forgot to get a handkerchief! Now I have to wipe my hands on my jeans!
Her: Don’t do that!
Me: Do you have wet wipes?
Her: No but I have a sanitizer.
Me: And what’s it supposed to do?
*Pulls out a little bottle and squirts some clear gel like thing on to my palms*
Her: Now rub your palms together!
Me: Wow… My hands… are clean!
Her: See! Carrying a sanitizer at all times helps!
Me: So that’s what a sanitizer is!
Her: Huh? What did you think it was?
Me: Something like a sanitary pad?
Yes, that really happened!
