According to Word Press analytics, 80% of my readers are women.* And on Monday, when I was having what I found to be the most entertaining conversation of all time, I naturally assumed you would, too.
While it seems that gay-men-BFFs are still on the rise for city-dwelling ladies, my equivalent to this is my very good friend El Hefe. While he isn’t gay and doesn’t particularly care about the majority of the information I launch at him (i.e. if we only eat once a day in Vegas, we’ll save so much money) I continue to talk at him.
And, it works wonders on my relationship since Boyfriend usually plugs his ears and starts in on “la-la-la-la” if I use the words uterus, tampon or period in his presence. (Not cramp though, for that he takes pity on me.)
PS – If you ever want to train your sig-other not to do something annoying, in my case fart all.the.time. audibly and in my presence, begin to explain the menstrual cycle. It’s amazing how quickly the farting stopped.
SPOILER ALERT: Yes, the following content is totally about my monthly visit from Flow.
Me: Omg. I’m craving a cheeseburger.
El Hefe: I was last week, I wanted a Red Robin Burnin’ Love burger
Me: Omigod I’m dying
El Hefe: Oh yeah? Because…
Me: I want a vacation.
El Hefe (2:43 pm): I fell asleep in my desk chair for a bit. Eh, my neck is sore now. I think I’m going to go hit golf balls tonight, want to come practice?
More pointless chitchat, mostly surrounding El Hefe’s relationship status. (If you are a red head between 5′-5’4″ and golf, I have the perfect guy for you.)
Me: Cramps. Sorry. (You’re welcome.)
El Hefe: Gross.
Me: Just be lucky that based on my calendar we won’t be traveling together when this is happening. Otherwise, it’d be all ow-this and cramp-that and i-might-vomit and GETMECHOCOLATENOW.
Me: Life is really hard.
El Hefe: It does change the silhouette a bit.
Me: When you were in high school, did you know you were gonna be the straight guy that ended up with primarily chick friends?
El Hefe: I was going to say no, but then I caught myself.
*I made this statistic up because I am not sure where to find the true stat or if it’s even offered. I CAN tell you that three people in Alaska read my blog on 9/13. Forreal.
