Missing blood

How tired am I of hearing perky, energetic women lament their lack of menstruation these last many months. Usually it's followed by some expression of concern about their health. "I'm going to see a doctor about it," they say, but then some months pass and the lamentations resume, no action having been taken. Sometimes I feel like I bleed for them all.

    I shouldn't laugh at that, but dammit that's funny. I can only sympathize by saying that I think I cramp for them all.

  2. Quite all right. For me, the sentence evokes an image of myself shaking my fists at the sky- which I find pretty funny myself.
