You’re all very lucky I haven’t included a picture with this post. As I stated in Female Bodies Part 1 (June 11 if you want to troll the archives), I work in an office that is usually mostly women. Some days I’m the only guy there. While that is generally a good thing, I sometimes learn things about my co-workers I’d rather not know. The discussion I walked in on today wasn’t anything new to me, but it got me to thinking. Apparently, just before I walked into the room, the ladies in the office were discussing their ahem,..menstrual cycles. As I’ve said before, and this bears repeating, just because the word menstrual has the word men right in it, that does not mean we caused your periods, so don’t take them out on us. Especially at work. Today the ladies were discussing how when one or more women spend a lot of time together, such as in a college sorority house, or an office their cycles get in sync. Just how exactly does that happen? Are your uteruses (or is it uteri?) emitting some kind of radio signal to each other? If they are broadcasting some kind of signal, then what the hell is it doing to me since I have to spend all day walking back and forth through these signals? Is it like standing too close to a microwave, or using my cell phone too much? Will I get some kind of tumor from all this high frequency exposure? Imagine the blast of radiation a gynecologist must get at work. Imagine the week they all have PMS each month! I’m taking vacation that week every month for the rest of the year.
