Well, since we all seem to be ladies here:

The 12 things that PMS stands for:

1. Psychotic Mood Shift

2. Pass My Shotgun

3. Perpetual Munching Spree

4. Puffy Mid-section

5. Pardon My Sobbing

6. Pimples May Surface

7. Pass My Sweatpants

8. Poopy Mood Syndrome

9. Potential Murder Suspect

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

The great are great only because we are on our knees.

OMG! So perfect........................................... I get #8 and occasionally #2 which reminds me of a lovely poem by Dorothy Parker.

Frustration

(Dorothy Parker)

If I had a shiny gun,

I could have a world of fun

Putting bullets through the brain

Of the folks that give me pain.

If I had some poison gas,

I could make the moments pass

Bumping off a number of

People whom I do not love.

But I have no lethal weapon

So does fate our pleasure step on.

And they are alive and well,

Who should be, by rights, In Hell.

Apparently can be sung to the tune of hark the Herald Angels Sing!

Sorry my dark side LOVES her poems- so sarcastic and cynical! :ph34r:
