One thing that I've come to realize that men just do not understand is that once a month many women suddenly/immediately/overnight feel 5-10lbs heavier. And there's very little to do about it besides suck it up (literally?) and wait. I've tried explaining this to B., who in his attempt to be sweet says something like, "Well you don't look any different."
I know!!!! But I feel like I just ate about a dozen birthday cakes, minus all of the happiness that eating cake brings.
And then on top of this, two days ago (right as I was starting to feel all heavy), B. announces: "I think I need to start eating a bit more. I think I'm losing weight."
*Expletive* *Expletive* *Expletive*
I would like, for just one day, men to have to feel all bloaty and blah (and not from drinking too much). Just one day...
