I'm PMSing...

It’s a week before “my aunt visits” and I’m PMSing.

I know this because I just went through a thirty-minute internal debate about whether to post a topic called “Why am I Invisible?”

I hate to be such a stereotypical woman, but irrationality pretty much rules me at this time of the month.

Most common question I ask: “What?”
Most common question I get: “Are you really hearing impaired?”

It’s a hormone thang, you can’t help it.

I wish you a short and smooth PMS.

How’s that for a Hallmark card that should exist?

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

OK now. Hand me that china plate, nice and easy…

So… why ARE you invisible?

Sucks to your assmar.

copious amounts of chocolate always helps me…

Hmmm… You’re invisible and apparently I’m inaudible. Maybe we could be a new SuperHero team.

Funny you should say that, Sue. Moments after starting this topic I resurrected Yankee Blue’s “Candy Bar Cravings” topic.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Go read some of my recent posts, and guess what time of the month it is for me.

Modest? You bet I’m modest! I am the queen of modesty!

Ever hear of Callebot chocolate canthearya? it does a great job of knocking auntie right off her feet. I get to witness 122 cases of pms every glorious month in the school i work at… ummm 123 including mine… I really think that we could be a bunch of rich women if we came up with our own brand of pms-away chocolate

We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by
embracing one another

Last week I felt terrible…in fact I have to admit that I was rather BITCHY! My poor man was confused all week, couldn’t talk to me at all because if he did I got mad. Everything he did or said upset me.

The thing I hate the most about PMSing is that I don’t even realize I’m being bitchy until a few days later when my mind clears. Then I have to apoligize for all of the nasty things I said or did.

I never used to get this way, I think that I’m getting old. Bummer…

I’m sure you’ll be better before she arrives. If not, explain it to her. I’m sure she’ll understand, being a woman too.

Please tell me you’re joking, AWB.

You gals want me to handle this? Maybe I can take the lad aside and explain a couple things to him. Or do you think AWB is joking?

Gosh Unca, maybe you should speak with him.

We women use a lot of diffrent phrases to speak of this subject.

My friend is visiting

Saddleblanket or cork( depending on personal preference) time

And so on.

I’m out of my mind, but,
feel free to leave a message

I think AWB is yanking your chains…(pst! AWB- If you weren’t, say you were!!)
I’m sure he knows that your “aunt” visiting refers to your “Aunt Flo”…as in “menstrual flow”…
(hopefully my subtle hint worked)
Anyway, I get really nasty around that time and end up apologizing numerous times…now we just stay away from each other for a few days :slight_smile:

Some mornings it just doesn’t seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

I know exactly how you feel, Canthearya, I’ve got one more day to go and I’m miserable!

Am I the only one who totally loses all brain power while pmsing? I can’t think straight, can’t remember anything and to top it off I get clumsy as hell. This morning I dropped an entire mug of coffee, knocked over my son, and somehow tripped up the stairs.

Is there any chance that this is covered by the Americans with Disabilties Act? I think for the safety of myself and those around me, I should be entitled to spend three days out of every month in bed waited on hand and foot :wink:

At least you’re in Heidelberg, tatertot.

[whine]Yoooooou can go downtowon and have a decent beeeer! Yooooooooou can go to the SchnellImbiss and have a wonderful bratwurst! Yoooooooooooou can go down to the Hauptstrasse and have the best gyros I’ve ever had in my entire life! Nooooo faaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrr!!![/whine]


Yep, and I live right across the street from the best gyros stand in all of Heidelberg. :slight_smile:

Sorry, I get really mean when I pms.

Hey, you’re always welcome to come visit, let’s just choose a week when we are both our wonderful, normal selves.

BTW, did you go to Heidelberg High, cause when I went to fabulous Frankfurt High we always thought the folks at H.H. were rather snobby & full of themselves.

Sorry…the Bitch is back :wink:

I wish there was some clear way to tell when the PMSer is in town. I had a hysterectomy a year or so back, and was pleased that they left my ovaries - since that meant I wouldn’t have to go through menopause just yet. I failed to take into consideration that I now have no marker to tell me when my cycles are going on. I often find myself wondering if a recent spate of behavior was hormonally driven - but my cycle was never regular, so there’s no way to count. I just have to wait out the clumsy phase and count the bruises…

The reason gentlemen prefer blondes is that there are not enough redheads to go around.

wooooooah, TMI
