I got home after work on Friday to find the Beast reading in the sunroom.
Foodie: What did you do to your hair? Where is it?
Beast: I got it cut. I asked for a classic ‘page boy’, what do you think?
Foodie: No! What about your curls?
The Beast and I were reunited late Friday night after being apart for two weeks. (I was half way around the world on a work assignment.) As I walked up our stairs, he grabbed my bottom, as couples are wont to do after being separated for so long, and felt something unusual.
Beast: What the hell is that?
Foodie: It’s a maxi pad.
Foodie: Can you believe that I got my period right before having to take three flights and crossing the International Date Line to come home?
Beast: Why didn’t you buy tampons?
