Totally sent this out to a couple of people today. I've always been inclined to exercise my way out of said situation (it's possible to get rid of it if you purge every ounce of fat on your body), on account of being a woman sucks, but I'm too lazy for more than 40min of thrashing activity a day--sooo glad I get to deal with it while being on jury duty for 2 days+ next week!
"Have a happy period". It could have only have been a man's idea.

Well..... I have had "happy periods" especially when I was frantic about being 'late'. Does that count? (says the mother of four)
