blood moons

i realize this is info normally beyond our pale, but the past 26 months i’ve been charting my wife’s monthly menstruum – length of period with days between. i do this even though lady is the least affected woman i’ve ever seen by her menses. i’ve had previous companions who went from ms jekyl to monstrous hyde with no warning in between. lady merely becomes more vulnerable, a little unsure of herself and others during moon blood. i keep an eye out, try to be even more understanding. it’s the little things that help – sometimes it’s doing the dishes, sometimes counting blood moons

lady k’s periodic chart
days between periods
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
20 days = 3
21 days = 5
22 days = 3
23 days = 8
24 days = 5
25 days = 2

and period duration
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –
3 days – 11 cycles
4 days – 10 cycles
5 days – 5 cycles

why such a range of durations, and days between? one would think it’d be cut and dried – one woman, one duration, one break between.

statistically every 23 days she starts expending 3.5 days of blood. her nipples hurt the week before, so she suffers one way or another 2 weeks out of every 4. it’s a hell of inconvenience when one wears the leaking oozing body of woman.

brings to mind the subject line from yesterday’s spam email – un”Happy moments with my girl ooze.”
