Overheard at Table 3: Blame It on My Period

Two weeks ago, my 23 year old daughter said that she yelled at her mom because she was on her period.

Then, last week, when I asked her why she hadn't finished the internship application like she said she was going to do, she said that she couldn't get to it because she was on her period.

Last night, she's heading out the door and she says to her mom and me, 'OK, I'm going to spend the night at my boyfriend's house but don't worry we're not going to have sex because I'm on my period!"

And I told her, "You are either using menstruation as some sort of blanket excuse, or you really need to go see a doctor!"
