After you go out and buy your Modess, wrap them up like a birthday present. You may want to buy some special polka-dot paper for this purpose.
Oh, and don’t forget the twine, either. Make a nice knot when you tie it up. The idea is to make it so difficult to get at that – here’s the clever bit – no one will know what you have inside the little box.
Because people know that you usually carry little wrapped boxes of note paper, and candy, and bath salts, and Kleenex, around with you – that’s just a normal day for you, isn’t it?
And keep holding the box up high like that – that way no one will even see the box. So they won’t think, hmm – Arlene’s sure got a thing for carrying wrapped boxes around, doesn’t she? And she never tells anyone what’s in them!
And there’s a different-colored box every day.
She shouldn’t really worry about hiding those Modess thingies, you know. Because after a few weeks of this, I think people are afraid to ask what’s in the box.
