Last week a couple of old mates came over for dinner. We have been friends for over 20 years, have seen each other through various births, deaths and marriages, and have that comfortable connection that comes with such history. And I will tell you this about these particular friends…

They are two of the funniest people I know.

You almost have to clear your mind before being in their company, as the razor sharp wit, combined with very strong opinions can leave you giddy and exhausted, but in the most delightful way. At some points, we have to have a bit of paper and a pen on hand, to write down things that we need to come back to dissect further, so quick is the conversation.

Much like a blender, it is this fast and furious banter into the night that whizzes up words, antics and stories into one long eruption of laughter.

They asked me how work was going. I told them that it was great, but there was one new client that I had to really get my head around, the new light bladder leakage product called Carefree Liners Plus.

Cue hysterical laughter.

I got shitty, and thanked them very much for their ideas.

Then one of them simply said “What about the downside of having funny friends?”

And so it began. A light bladder-leaking workshop.

We came up with a list of all things that causes light bladder leakage, which is actually known as LBL, which is a more sensible and respectful way of saying, “doing a little dribble.” And because one in three women over the age of 35 live with LBL, those numbers mean that it is time to bring the shame out of it, because if you do not suffer from it, a lot of your friends do.

What can cause LBL?

• Stress
• Jumping on the trampoline with your kids
• Sneezing
• Laughing
• Doing lunges during Huffy Puffy
• Being Pregnant
• After being pregnant because your pelvic floor has been left in a state.
• Menopause

Did you know that some women are so paranoid about LBL that they adjust their activities, stay at home etc. because they are so ashamed?

I say BALLS TO THAT LADIES! Life is too short. Get amongst it!

Carefree Plus Liners are a little more heavy duty than your regular liner, will keep you fresh for 12 hours and will leave you, well… more Carefree! Click here for your sample.

But back to the downside of having funny friends. To be honest, I couldn’t find one. I could not imagine life without them, and I just love them to bits. Even though they can be cruel and evil in many ways. Like laughing at my work.

“Friendship is like peeing in your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warm feeling inside.”
