Never piss off a woman with a period who got on the wrong side of the bed
The alarm on my cellphone woke me today. I felt irritated when I heard the familiar sound that I know will never stop not unless I get up and press the stop button on my phone which eventually I did. I ended up waking up looking a zombie with red eyes. And you think you don't look good in the morning, well I think I looked like anybody's worst nightmare at that point. I decided to go to toilet to do my usual routine of washing my face, peeing and brushing my teeth. I got back to my room and fixed myself up. God! I was a mess! I didn't even smile as I combed my hair in front of my mirror. Clearly, I was pissed today. Why? I don't know. Maybe for no reason at all. Well, I have this condition sometimes and it gets worse whenever I get my period. Must be the hormones kicking in or whatever they call it. So, I get myself a cup of black coffee and as I was finally enjoying my moment of peace while to condition myself to a day ahead of me, I realized my peace wouldn't last long. The laundry folks have arrived and I didn't even call them. Well, my neighbor did. They were kind enough to ask me if was ready to give my stash of dirty clothes to the laundry folks too. I appreciated the effort for doing so but clearly, I wasn't in a good mood for everything at that moment. I tried to smile in front of them but as I put all my dirty clothes inside some disposable bags while writing an inventory about them, I mumbled a bit. After a few tantrums, I gave my laundry away and went back to my cup of coffee. Sadly when I got back, it had already gone cold but since I didn't want to waste good coffee, I decided to just finish drinking it. Then I realized it's already 11 and that means I should be cooking lunch soon. I don't know why but I still feel a bit cranky which makes me feel like I don't want to do much today but I know I have a schedule to keep. So after, cooking a meal that I half-heartedly cooked for everyone, I decided to just write about my day so far. My day hasn't been pretty, I know but I always take comfort in the fact that writing about it can help ease my discomfort somehow. Blogging to me now is sort of like having another outlet to let my feelings out. This way I wouldn't actually be able to hurt anyone and since there is freedom of speech, I can just go on ranting about anything and everything without naming names of course. So, here I am doing just that. Hopefully, before my day comes to an end, I'll stop being in this bad mood but seriously, this is how women are sometimes. We're moody, we're cranky, and sometimes we don't really why. So, don't ask us to explain how it goes for sometimes were as clueless as you all are. So, the next time you find out that a woman you know is feeling this way, I suggest you back off for a while and give her some space to do her thing. Otherwise, you might end up being in a situation you don't want to be. Women are unpredictable and I am one so here's a confession. Now you know.
