The other day I broke down in tears, because I couldn't find a cute enough coffee shop to chill at with my husband man on our day off. I was like, "I wanted to try this coffee shop, but it's 30 minutes away," and then I started crying hysterically. My husband looked me in my eye, put his arm around me and said, "It's ok, babe. I'll drive. Let's go."
But I could not be consoled, and I refused to go.
And then I got my period later that evening. I saw that first bit of red and nodded to myself. Ha ha. That's why I felt so crazy. It's not me, it's my uterus. My uterus is lashing out for having to expel its lining every month. If I could redesign the menstruation process, I would have all of the blood come out in one go. Just one big clump of blood and done-zo. None of this trickling in, is it gonna start or isn't it, panty liners for days, assortment pack of tampons, pelvic cramps NONSENSE. Can we evolve more please?
The only good thing about being a woman who menstruates is the free pass it gives you to act like a crazy bitch for a few days every month. Well, that and the ability to create life in your womb. That also is a cool thing about being a menstruating woman in the world.
Plus side: Create life. Free pass to be irrationally angry and cry over trivial things.
Down side: Bleeding from the vagina. (Very messy.)
