I’m about to take a risk. That risk is over-sharing but I’m sorry, when something hits me, I need to get it out there.
It’s been a rough morning for me. My puppy woke me up at 6:15am which is not a good look for a person who may have had a few drinks the night before and played video games into the wee hours of the morning.
Anyway, back to the matter at hand. I’ve known it was coming; I’ve been having some cramps, irritability and honestly, I’ve been trying to “wish” it away. That doesn’t work. Of course I thought of our book and the first chapter is a retelling of Adam and Eve.
Not saying I believe that any of this happened because it truly is absurd but when things go wrong, we need someone to blame and I blame Eve. Actually, come to think of it, I’m trying to understand how when God “created” Eve, he thought oh, let me give her a “uterus, ovaries and a uterin wall.” That right there is a fiasco. Wouldn’t it have been easier for him to have devised a different way for people to get pregnant and deliver babies? but no, we have lady parts and they bleed.
Eve is a jerk because she is supposedly the first woman ever created. Her periods probably weren’t even that bad until the whole serpent, forbidden fruit nightmare. I hate her and I hate my life for the next five days.
One time when I was younger I said to my mom, “Geez, my cramps hurt so bad.” Her response, “GO GET YOU SOME PAMPRIN AND HAVE A NORMAL DAY.” I could have slapped her.
Anyway, in our book, in chapter 2, Eve talks a bit about what it was like being on her period back then. Gathering leaves for pads and all. #GROSS – I guess there is a bright side – we have Always overnight with wings and Kotex tamps.
Serves her right. Also, good morning and have a lovely day!
