One of my co-workers looked especially haggard today - so much so that our boss said to her, "You should go home. You look awful!"
She explained to me that she had a terrible headache all day yesterday and today, that she couldn't sleep and that she was feeling generally run-down. When I asked if she should see a medical expert, she replied, "Oh, it's women's troubles and it happens every month for three days. I got it from my mother."
Well, I hope it was from your mother! If your father experienced three day's worth of ladies' problems every month, I'd be very concerned. And confused.
