did you say that outloud?

If I was queen…

…every woman would get the first three days of their mentrual cycle off of work, family duties, and anything else they wanted to shirk on those days.

Because really. Is there anything you want to do during your period other than curl up in a ball on the couch eating whatever you’re craving?

    Sing it, sister!

    Although some months, the middle days – ovulation time – are almost as uncomfortable. That’s when I’m thankful that my months of this are probably numbered :-).

    I will not miss my period when it’s gone. So color me jealous that your days are numbered!

    How about a “red tent” where all us women can hang out for the 5 days and not have to do anything?

    So long as I don’t have to go to work or do household chores, I’m cool with whatever! 😛

    I already do this. 😛 What? The chore police won’t get me.

    I know the chore police won’t come, but I hate just hanging out in a dirty house too, you know? Perhaps the answer is that for those 3 or 4 days, all women get a maid, who comes in and cleans. The point is that you shouldn’t have to do do anything during those few days, but my compulsions/ideas of how things should be don’t always let me do nothing.

    Wow, I am with you here! I should definitely try to negotiate it into my contract at my next review 😉

    I second this idea!

    I love the idea of a red tent–except for the part where I come out of the tent after 5 days and no one has washed the dishes, or done any laundry or cleaned any bathrooms. But a couple of days off of work would be lovely!

    I think I solved your problem by deciding that you would also get a maid for those 3-5 days. Because dishes? Holy torpedo those things pile up fast.

    Oh yes! A maid would be just the thing! She could clean the bathrooms while she was here as well…and dust and wash walls. Oh how that woman would work for those 5 days!

    Gotta agree with you! Although I have to agree with Florinda – it seems like most of the rest of the month isn’t always any better.

    Yelling, I always need something or someone (usually my husband) to yell at. If I could have 3 days off and someone awful that I could yell at and not feel bad about I would be set.

    I vote to make you queen.

    I’d totally take someone to yell at. Sometimes I’m just irritated and need someone to snap at.

    Also, wait till you see these other ideas I’ve got for when I’m queen. I will be using my power wisely, I promise that!

    If we get to vote for queen someday, I’m voting for you 100%. 🙂

    Roll in a ball on the couch,eat whatever u what , yell if u need it and take any med u want to give u comfort.I’m all for it. It’s a challenge when u have a period and it’s a challenge when u no longer do. So basically I’m saying, when I’m queen, don’t buck me! or if u are queen, Don’t buck her!

    You have my vote for queen…I’ll even pay to have your velvet and ermine robe dry-cleaned! Pass the bridge mix.

    The only thing I would add to your proclamation is that the men and children of the house must be ready to serve in whatever capacity is needed during that time as well. Like bringing me the heating pad or a nice glass of iced tea. The husband should also prepare himself to feed bonbons to me as well.

    Absolutely! And they couldn’t be bitter about it. They would do it out of the goodness of their hearts.

    I wish you were Queen too. I could totally get behind this idea!

    I have months when the first day of my period makes me want to curl up with a heat pad or one of those microwaveable rice sacks and moan as often as I feel the need to. But I’m grateful that after a day and a half I’m pretty much back to normal. Makes me miss being on birth control–for a couple years, I forgot how awful that first day can be.

    seriously. if we can go to the moon, surely we can have a magic wand that waves away periods. if men had them, they would have developed something magical to combat the ill effects YEARS ago.

    You get my vote for queen! Even worse is when you’re trying to get pregnant, so you’re already depressed that the period came. Then you get to deal with the period itself.

    Amen! I teach school, and I brace myself for the grouchy side of me that will come out. I always pray that the kids haven’t figured this “monthly” disturbance in the cheery force field that is usually their teacher. LOL.
