Someone told this joke at work yesterday:
Q: How many days are there in a year?
A: 325. The rest are Lent to us.
It took me THIRTY MINUTES to get that punchline. Half an hour. That’s a whole episode of Friends plus a few tampon commercials wherein all the women are swimming and laughing!
Because that’s an accurate depiction of what makes me kick the door in and yell, “WHERE ARE THE DORITOS?!?!” And of course those women are laughing and tossing their hair, not wondering why the label on the $35 cleanser they purchased from Sephora really has to tell it like it is: to prevent the signs of hormonal aging.
It did not read: to make you look fiiiine, sistah girl! It’s not as if I’m pulling some Benjamin Button mess when I get my period. Give a sick sister a break! And hand me a bag of chips, I might be able to taste them now and there’s only one way to find out.
