One of the loveliest things about working with a group of ladies is that at a certain point, we are all fall onto the same menstrual cycle!
Hooray! Blood for everyone!
And as the debuty editor of Jezebel once astutely pointed out, if the gift of menstruation were one bequeathed to our male counterparts, they wouldn’t be half as discreet as we are about concealing tampons and panty liners and Midol and so forth. In fact, they’d probably brag up a storm on how heavy their flows are.
I can see it now.
“Yo, dude, I blew through TWO layers of slacks this afternoon. It was fucking crazy.”
While we’re not sure we’re there quite yet, we are declaring universal periodness on this gloomy Monday afternoon, which begs an entirely different – albeit more important – question. What is your period emoji?
Amelia says she uses the sideways frowning cat face because cats are bitchy and don’t like friendship, just like her for three days a month.
Because there is no puddle for my using pleasure, I’ve often deferred to the knife emoji. This is because whenever I stand up, it kind of looks like I’m fleeing a crime scene.
Charlotte uses the angry red face, a glass of wine and the chocolate bar emoji to signal her time of month because she is great at illustrative math that really uh, packs a punch.
But what about you? WHICH EMOJI DO YOU USE TO DISCREETLY INFORM YOUR FRIENDS THAT YOUR OVARIES HAVE TURNED THEIR BACK ON YOU YET AGAIN?
