They Should've Just Called It The 'Mad Cow Disease'

Yes, I’m talking of PMS. Damn patents, why couldn't they just have called it that??!! How else do you explain bawling for 3 hours because someone did not live up to the plan you had made involving the two of you, in your head!

The story goes like this – I asked A on Friday afternoon if we (all of us friends) had plans for the night. He said we didn’t. So I expected him to come up with a plan for the two of us. He didn’t. So I called him after work to see if he was up for something & he said he was out for dinner with a couple of colleagues. I said “No issues” & hung up. But of course, I had plenty of issues. I was feeling sad, dejected & let down. So I didn’t take his calls the rest of the evening, didn’t reply to his messages.

He knew he was in trouble. Any man with half a brain would know! So the next day he came over to my place as soon as he woke up and what followed was me crying (not sobbing, mind you) for 3 hours because he didn’t hang out with me the night before!

His reaction….”Was I supposed to?”

“Yes you were!”

“But we had no plans!”


“But you didn’t even say you wanted to go out?”

“So what? Couldn’t you have come up with something?”

“But how am I supposed to know you want to go out unless you say so?”

“What’s there to know?? It was Friday night! It’s the weekend, remember?”

“You’re being unreasonable!”

“You’re being insensitive.”

“This is crazy!”

“So deal with it.”

“Okay fine. I’m sorry. Let’s go for brunch.”


“Why not?”

“I’m not done yet.”

“Done with what?”


“You’ve got to be kidding me! How much longer are you planning to cry?”

“I don’t know. Till I feel like it.”

He waited patiently for 3 hours while I cried. By then it was time for restaurants to stop serving lunch.

:) Didnt you get hungry in the middle of your crying. I would stop after 43 minutes only because my tummy would have held me for ransom otherwise!

@Moonshine - That's the least men can do, right? Be sensitive when we're on the rag ;)

@SSQuo - I didn't get hungry but I have a sinus problem, so my nose gets clogged completely the moment I start crying. It's very difficult to cry when you can't breathe! Lol!
