If you had been a fly on the wall in our kitchen last night, as Daniel and I cleaned up the dinner mess, you would have heard the following. I'll start in the middle of the conversation, so as to spare you the mundane details.
ME: So what do you think was troubling her?
DANIEL: I really don't know.
ME: Maybe she has her period right now.
DISCLAIMER: I am personally acquainted with the potentially devastating effects of hormones, so I have a teeny bit of room to talk here.
ME: This is what would concern me about having a woman president. What happens when there is a hostage situation in a U.S. embassy in a hostile country, and our president has her period?
DANIEL: It depends on how heavy her periods are.
ME: True, but how would we know that about her when we are casting our votes?
DANIEL: It could be part of her campaign. Maybe she would put it right into her slogan, "Light periods, heavy hand."
|The truth is, I would vote for a woman president - regardless of how heavy her periods are - but I wouldn't vote for me:)|
