Dad’s gotten 1000% better talking about periods since we started using Shark Week euphemisms:
"Ah, it’s Shark Week?" = "Ah, you started your period?"
"Harpoons on deck?" = "Do you have enough pads/tampons/etc?"
"Chum stocks are holding?" = "Do you need chocolate/midol?"
"Supplies are low cap’n" = "Yes, please."
"What kind (of shark) is it?" = "How do you feel?"
- "It’s a Nurse Shark" = "I’m fine/not bad"
- "GREAT WHITE OFF THE STARBOARD BOW" = "FUCKING OW"
People always say it hurts the most at night. Most people miss somebody at 3 am when they can’t sleep and can’t help but notice how alone and incomplete they feel.
Some people miss somebody at 5 am when they just get home from a night of distractions and realize they are now in bed alone.
I miss you all the time.
But sometimes It’s at 9 am as i’m driving to work and a song that reminds me of you comes on the radio. Suddenly I can’t catch my breath and my heart breaks all over again as I realize i’m starting a new day, without you.
