PMS-Post dedicated and inspired by Hubby dear

Yes I am referring to Pre/Post Menstrual syndrome....and yes it apparantly does exist!

There are two types of people in the world....those that suffer from PMS (no not the women...was actually talking about men..since its they who suffer from women's PMS) and those on the other side of the world who actually have PMS (thats women for you--and yes thats exactly why I have been lobbying that we should be thankful for the ones having PMS and not suffering from it..world again feels like such a wonderful place:-))!!!)

I belong to the latter category!

Ok so for all the medical researchers who want to study this syndrome--I am your ideal candidate-yes indeed...according to Hubby dear I display (or have displayed) usually most symptoms associated with this syndrome...irritation, anger, depression...In Fact I may have even invented a few not listed by them!

And am sure Hubby Dear would love me for coming up with this phrase...but he genuinely believes that for me PMS means"Psycho Mannerisms Start"!..Ahem

In fact so much so...that Hubby Dear had religiously put in an Alarm on his cell close to my due date which stated...."Psycho behaviour begins"!....Red Alert!

So now I finally have found my purpose in life...to save you men folks of the world.....And to reduce your sufferings(feeling very holy)...all you men folk will start believing I am their messiah...coz of what I am about to tell you.... for men like Hubby who dont have a choice but to live with the Psychoness of women in this time here are "tried and tested" 6 cardinal rules on how to handle it....

1) Usage of the word "OK" if increased during this phase to EVERYTHING that your women says will reduce the chances of u getting battered and bruised!

2) NO FEEDBACK--Read NEGATIVE feedback at this time can be "Constructive"--so unless you have something "Nice" to say to her and about her...SHUT UP!

3) Any Suggestion/ opinions etc at this point of time can be strictly avoided! So what if she asks for your opinion? For the inexperienced lot--this is how you handle it--Ask her for her opinion-"Am still thinking honey--what do u think?" And then whatever she says--follow Rule number 1--OK!!

4) Touching on "sensitive" topics like "Her weight, her parents, her cooking, her hairstyle..etc" can not just prove dangerous but fatal..steer clear!

5) This is however the catchy one--behaving too sweet or romantic or "over" pampering her can make you appear "unnatural"(please note..."over pampering is unnatural--pampering is advisable..in fact mandatory).
However even worse would be if you start ignoring her! Giving undue attention to your "true love" (again...notice the focus on true love) which is gadgets like PS3( ahem..refer to previous post), laptops, sports channels during this time can simply mean--Ur digging your own grave!

Only the smart and experienced ones can strike the right balance (read..with enough practice and bruises!)

6) Stopping her from doing anything ( read 2 exceptions are murder and suicide) ...by statements like "Why do you need more clothes/ shoes/bags..dont you have enough?", "I think you should stop eating so much chocolates--its beginning to show"....means your either genuinely and really really stupid or you love pain-sadistic bugger!

Like I said...these are time tested and proven theories--no women can dispute these and no man can disprove these--So men you can touch my feet now--the Mystery is solved!

P S:- Even after following the above 6 religiously if the Psycho behaviour continues...please note you are stuck with a actual Psycho........RUUUNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even 'over-pampering' is fatal!

See!! I give up! No way that I could even keep up in this position!

Hi Ekta!
Hahahaa from the title to the end.
What a pity that I didn't know those 6 cardinal rules earlier.
(I mean my hubby didn't know)

 
At 3:15 PM, Blogger John F said...

And they call women the weaker sex...phew!

You know I beleive in women equality. I beleive they should be brought down a notch and made equal to us poor old ignored males.

Gosh the world is so unfair. I wish God gave us men some kind of an excuse as well to really be on the lose for 5-6 days!

*ROFL*

I read it like this, those who are suffering from PMS should suffer more beacure of those who actually have PMS, during the period of PMS. :P lolzzzz

So nothing else is required, but one needs to be a perfett hubby material for this time being!!! :P

And i wanted to ask a few things!!!
Any suggetions, feedbacks, talking on such sensitive issues (:P), overpampering, isnt allow during PMS or its like a general advise you are giving to us??? :P :D

It all sounds hularious, but i hope i have my answers with few doubts!!! haha
