Early on in our relationship my boyfriend (now husband) and I were talking one morning. It was one of those PMS mornings where I was feeling moody. I probably started into some whiney monologue. Since it was the first time he’d seen me like this, his face showed confusion and concern.
I stopped whatever I was talking about and flipped a switch, “Hey, I’m moody. It’s near my special time of the month. This is NORMAL.”
He was silent for pretty much the rest of the day.
Flash forward (weeks or months). The next time I was a little grouchy, he interrupted me and asked timidly, “Is it your NORMAL time?”
Then he recalls the time when I explained my monthly moodiness. It sounds like this: “THIS IS NORMAL,” in a dragon breathing, monster voice like from Ghost Busters or something. I had red glowing eyes and my head was spinning in his recollection.
I’m so thankful to have someone who will make fun of me when I’m being annoying.
Do you have a code for that time? My mom, sister and I used the Korean word for it, growing up, so it was a secret from my dad.
