My Carrie Moment

Fortunately, nobody poured cows blood on me. And I didn’t burn any gymnasiums down in the recent past either. Nor did I tenderize my mother with various kitchen flatware.

But I did apparently have a period in the shower this morning.

I’m serious! I’m not sure what was going on. I was simply lathering up with soap when I noticed a sudden large drop of blood land near my feet. Startled, I immediately put my finger to my nose thinking it must be a nosebleed. Alas, nothing there. I then inspected every inch of my body only to find that there were no wounds. No blemishes had burst open (I had no zits, thank you very much). No cuts or scabs were evident. And all of my appendages were still intact.

And there was just that one spash of blood. As quickly as it dropped from my body and landed in the pooled water, it disappeared as it mixed with the water and ended up flowing toward the drain.

It must have been my nose. At least that’s my best guess. But now I know how Carrie felt. I can relate to my sisters of the world. I am woman – hear me roar!

    You aren’t secretly planning on going to a prom or anything, are you?

    I think you need some time in the closet. [I CAN SEE YOUR DIRTY PILLOWS!]

    I love how all of my gays are quoting or explicitely referencing the movie!

    I’m so proud.

    That’s such a fun-knee yet disturbing post Karl. I love it, I think. Well, don’t bleed anymore, it’s just not sexy! 🙂
