So I was supposed to hang out with a friend from elementary/junior high last night and her girlfriend after she saw the Native American AIDS Project benefit starring Judy Tenuta and Alec Mapa. I texted her after the performance to see what her plans were (and since she's notorious for being flaky).
I got a call almost immediately.
"Hey, I can't make it tonight..."
-That's fine. What's going on?
(silence) "Oh, God, I feel so gross!"
-What? What's wrong?
"Oh! My period! It started during the performance! I feel so disgusting!"
-That's all right. Really. We'll hang out another time...
I love her, but did I really need to know that??? None of my other girlfriends feel a need to announce their periods with me...
