When does InDEPENDence Day begin? November 11, 2008

Play on words.  I wonder if that’s how the manufacturer of the product DEPENDS came up with the name?  Carved it right out of the word independence.  To them maybe it meant that our elders would feel more independent going out without fear of an “accident”.  Or maybe that the buyer’s independence was almost over but that they could depend on Depends.  What do you think, folks?  Remember when we used to go into the drugstore or market for (ssshhhh, don’t say it outloud) Tampons or Condoms?  Remember hoping  that the person behind you in the cash register line was of the same sex as you so you wouldn’t feel so awkward?  Or that the person on the register was going to be descrete and quickly slip it into a bag – without making eye contact with you?  Was I the only one who felt like that?  Will I be the only one who would prefer to have my Depends drop shipped directly to my home with no identifying marks on it?
