How am I not in Shock Therapy?

Below is an excerpt from a recent phone call with my mother, a call during which I complained about the more painful-than-usual cramps I suffered during my last menstrual cycle.

Piglet: You know, mom, this is completely your fault. I inherited these god-awful cramps from you.

Mother (who ACTUALLY says): Whatever. Just be glad that you’re not married. Otherwise, that blood would be symbolic of your failure as a woman.

I remain speechless.

  1. Haha! Whoah! I thought it was melodramatic when my mom said in all seriousness, "Well look how you turned out." I can't compete.
