bob's burgers (quickly becoming my new favorite cartoon) and at one point, the youngest daughter is saying she doesn't want to hang out with her older sister and mother because they are the "menstruation nation." if i'd had milk in my mouth, it would have come out my nose at that point, i laughed so hard. the truth is, as much as the girlchild loves me and my mother, i can tell she feels the same way sometimes, and just wants to hang out with her brother and pop because with them the subject of periods and cramps and annoying things like bloating never come up. i am, indeed, part of the menstruation nation. i can totally remember feeling the same way about my mom and aunts, and it's ridiculous and hilarious to be on the other side of that. you'll be happy to know she found it funny as well, and not just because i cackled when the kid said it.
yeah, i cackle. just like my mother!
