This may just be a little too much information for some of you, but I'm goin' with it anyway. Proceed with caution.
When I was in college, I lived in a house with seven other girls. Eight young women in one house can be interesting at times. I didn't know it when I first moved in, but it has been said that when women live together their menstrual cycles often sync. This was the case in our house. For some unknown reason, I was the one they synced to... I started the whole ordeal each month and my roommates followed within days.
I remember one time we had a room open up in our house and we got a new roommate. I don't remember who it was that moved in or who said it to her, but I distinctly remember this being said: "Be prepared for your period to change dates. Clancy's The Moon and she'll pull you in like the tide!" A new nickname was born.
It's just weird the things that come up in my mind on these Manic Mondays.
