The Ungrammatical Period

There comes a time in every young girl's life when she discovers she will be a woman. First she fantasizes about what life will be like with boobies, a husband, babies.... And then one day the fantasy is squashed by glimpses of reality. Today was Abby's day. The day she learned the truth about periods, and I'm not referring to the grammatical kind. The following are three statements she actually made to her dad:

"I don't want a crotch."
"I'm not gonna take care of it."
"I want it out of me."

Ironically, all three end with a period.

I'm a teacher by trade, writer at heart & mom in every sense of my being. I never considered writing as a profession, but after I got married and began moving around the country, I began sharing my adventures, misadventures & updates through a sort of e-mail newsletter. I found a true passion in unconventional story-telling that has followed me into motherhood.
