Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Did Mary suffer from PMS? 

That's something I wonder about whenever I'm slogging through a Really Bad Case Of PMS. Like today. Some months are better than others, of course, but in the Way Bad Ones, I find myself pondering ...
  • Did Mary, the Immaculate Conception, ever get tired and bloated? Of course, the bloated thing, if she suffered it, was prolly a lot less annoying for her -- no jeans to squish into.
  • Did she ever complain to Joseph about not being able to wear any of her clothes because she looked like a fat cow in all of them?
  • How about the crankiness? Did the simple sound of Joseph's breathing make her wanna sock 'im in the gut? And did she ever get a surge of homicidal rage triggered merely by him walking into the room?
  • When Joseph asked her to bring him something, did she instead chuck the item in question at his head from across the room?
Ah, well, the answers to these questions shall undoubtedly remain a mystery for the ages. Now, 'scuse me while I go holler at Husband Mike for Typing Too Loudly On The &%*$^ Keyboard.

I have suffered from PMS for quite a while...a few things help. Flaxseed oil (I take it in capsule form) is good for that. I also take a medication called Sarafem for 2 weeks out of the month. If I don't "time" the beginning of that dosage just right, everybody suffers and I need to go to Confession. Yikes.
I think Mary had the right idea. Those long, flowing robes are good camouflage for the bloating, that's for sure!

I wonder myself if she had a Death Glare.

Joseph: Where's the bread?
Mary: Behind the such-and-such.
Joseph: Yeah, I looked there.
Mary: *removes the such-and-such and delivers Death Glare*
Joseph: Oh.
