Wanted: Cave w/o Snakes or Spiders

I’ve been told back in the olden days, when an Indian woman was having that time of the month, she’d go off by herself to a cave to spend the week.

I was also told that was because she was “unclean” in the eyes of the rest of the tribe.


She went to her cave by herself because her family was about to drive her nuts and she knew she didn’t have enough arrowheads & spears to do them all in.

Not to mention, the clean-up after.

Why folks can’t understand it the FIRST time you say, “I’m not being mean, but I feel like shit, my nerves feel raw & I really just want to be quiet & left alone.”, is beyond me.  That seems to be when everybody turns into a freakin’ Chatty Cathy.

What are you doing?

I’m cooking supper. [Seems obvious]

What are we having?

Hamburger steak, peas, turnip greens & squash. [Once again, it seems pretty damned obvious]

Want some help?

No, I’ve got it covered.

You know, the other day blah-blah-blah…

And I pick up a damned hamburger steak with my hand instead of spatula.

PLEASE Marvin K. Mooney, won’t you just go on now?

Then, after I’ve explained the peace & quiet thing a dozen times, they act hurt because that vein on my forehead is standing out like a neon sign & I have picked up the butcher knife for no apparent food-related reason.


I intend to stock my cave with coffee, copious amounts of chocolate, potato chips & toilet paper.  What more could a girl need?

    I like strawberry preserves, but I’m not particularly fond of strawberries.

    Glenn, you deserve a medal for being amongst that much estrogen

    Rick, I might forget why I was in my cave if I had much vodka. 😀 Although, a small vodka tonic with a twist of lime never really hurt anyone, did it?
