This quote from another thread prompted the thought - why ain't you gals required to provide some type of signalling or warning method to keep the rest of us poor schmucks aware of your PMS condition for the day. (OMG am I writing this? I hope I survive the day! ) This would be especially helpful for smart-arsed, loud-mouthed, sweeties like me...who just can't help making humorous or complimentary cracks (or a combination of the two).I do that too and feel the same way. I'll shake my head, mouth "moron" and stronger names, and when I'm PMS'ing, yell "scofflaw!!". Woe to the easily embarassed scofflaw who encounters me at certain times of the month...
I figure for female cyclists, a warning flag, much like the heat condition flags we used to have in boot camp, might be a workable idea.
Green: Everything is cool, be yourself, enjoy it while it lasts.
Yellow: Proceed with caution, no imminent danger, but one wrong word and you could be toast.
Red: Danger, Will Robinson, Danger! Avoid contact at all costs and if it cannot be avoided, have your escape route planned, your life insurance premiums paid and your will updated.
Black: OMFG, SHE'S GONNA BLOW! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!
Thank you for your support and cooperation.
