Surely it's the most original I've heard so far! Very Happy

Before the cup I was with "my things", that's the way most of us call menstruation here in Italy, as LisBeth explained before; now with the cup I'm "no-leaking!" (yes, in English and with the exclamation mark... my mom and my boyfriend know what it means) Razz

So, first I was falling to them, to being invaded, to overthrowing them.

If in a bad mood I have been known to say 'my stupid friend is here'. More often than not though I just refer to my period as my Lady Friend. I prefer to make up names rather than use 'period' - it just sounds so boring and final Laughing
