Call the bluff on THE MONTHLY VISITOR

The Guide:

The very idea of it makes men blush. There is only one thing worse: when men try to talk about it frankly and honestly. Then women blush.

IdeaSmith: Reminds me of a conversation with 2 male friends:

Man 1 (upon seeing grimace on my face caused by cramps): Bad time? Shall I get you some medicine? Uh, what medicine? Isn’t that called the Pill?

Me: No.

Man 1: But you look terrible!

Man 2: Laughter is the best medicine.

Me: I don’t want any medicine.

Man 1: But you look terrible! (like I didn’t hear it the first time….like I needed to hear that)

Man 2 (undeterred…but who says men listen anyway?): Why was there blood on the dance floor?

Me: I don’t know and I don’t care.

Man 2: Because Susie had her period!!! Hahahaha!

Me: *Slap slap*
