6. You sit back at your desk and wait. It would be weird to go right back to the bathroom too soon. You don’t want to raise suspicion.

8. You reach into your purse and deftly slip the tampon up into your sleeve.
9. You avoid everyone, scared that your secret cargo will fly out of your sleeve if you have to wave or shake hands.
