Because, you see, my period started today. And it did catch me a bit by surprise, because I am pretty terrible about checking my calendar even when I've written it down. But I did manage to catch it in time before any embarrassing staining occurred. But sadly, I neglected to change the pad in time, and I noticed that, as I got up from dinner, I had bled through the back of my trousers onto the seat. The cream coloured, suede seats.
So now I have had to explain to both my parents what has happened, and I'm not convinced at this moment that I have adequately cleaned the seat without damaging the leather. :(
