Our ancient foremothers, in their infinite wisdom, saw fit to seperate themselves from the rest of the community during their menses, consorting only with other women at that special time. As Magdalene pointed out in the PMT thread currently running in the Pit, this was a great idea for women who could relax and hang out with their friends, temporarily relieved of the day-to-day duties facing them the other 24 days of the the lunar month. And I expect the menfolk benefited as well, although they did co-opt the idea, claiming that they forced the women out for being unclean. Yeah, right.
Anyhow, ladies, it occurs to me that it is time to regain the wisdom of our ancestors and create a modern Menstraly Hut - the ultimate spa for women at that time of the month. I expect to be winning the lottery anyday now and plan to run the MH as a non-profit org, but I need some help with the details. The amenities thus far will include:
Custom-built heated massage reclining chairs
Circulating whirlpool tubs
Screening rooms with continual showings of chick-flicks for every mood, from Bette Davis & Joan Crawford bitch-fests to weepies like “Terms of Endearments” to revenge fantasies like “Thelma & Louise”
An all-female staff ready to provide sympathy and bucking-up (“have you been losing weight?”)
Dining rooms without salad bars
By special request, well-built young men will rub your feet and back, all the while murmuring apologies for everything he can think of.
All furniture has built-in caches of Godiva chocolates.
A metal detector - no guns allowed, please.
Okay, what am I forgetting? Remember, it’s your spa, designed to grant your every whim.
