Conversation between me and my 14 year-old daughter yesterday morning:
Her: Why won't you let me stay home from school?
Me: Because it's just cramps. And I know it's a scorching case, but it's just not enough of a reason to stay home. Here's an ibuprofin and a glass of milk.
Her: You're fired.
Me: Great! I get to keep all my disposable income!
Her: You don't understand because you're going through menopause, and your periods are, like, nothing.
Me: A) They are not nothing, and B) I've had periods for 35 years. I know everything about periods.
Her: Periods are a curse from God for getting humans kicked out of the Garden of Eden.
Me: Let me be more clear: I know everything TRUE about periods.

How many Justin Biebers could you take in a fight? (via ms_figg)
I'm happy to learn that I could still take 21 Biebers in a fight. Sure, it doesn't sound like many, but it might buy me some time until I could steal a Hummer or something!
