This is another humourous (or at least attempting to be) MyTake. I wrote a similar MyTake about a week ago, about being "the girl" of the group now I'm writing about stuff my guy friends just don't understand no matter how many times I try to explain, so let's get into this.
#1 - Periods
I'm not one to talk about this subject in front of my guy friends, with good reason. Because no matter how simply I try to explain they just won't get it! Periods are one of those things you have to experience, to understand.
I remember when 11-year-old me first learned about periods and I was so excited to get it. Then one day I was about 12 or 13 and I felt a pain in my stomach- it was like this continous pain of me getting stabbed- in my back too, yeah I soon discovered the reason for that and cried in the toilet cubical at school because it hurt so much.
Anyway that story aside, I have had friends who are girls who have talked about periods in front of our guy friends- and the questions the guys have asked...
I'll give an example of one: "Does it come out like a tap? Like whooooooosh or does it come out like- drip, drip, drip?" 🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️
I wasn't there when that happened (gladly) but I remember when we met at our table at lunch my friends were telling me what happened and that's when I learned:
I don't want to answer any awkward questions, because they just won't get it, so don't talk about that.
#2 - The Hair Struggles
So the other day on Instagram, I was messaging one of them we were talking about memes/Spider-Man/our inside jokes- the usual but I was washing my hair whilst doing so. Now my hair is long, thick, and curly/wavy- so you can imagine it dripping everywhere.
And I kinda decided to give up on the chat because... The struggle was real.
Then I forgot about it and went to bed.
And the next day, I realised and when I got to college I apologised to him and explained my struggle and all he said to me was (jokingly):
Now he has short, thin, straight hair so of course he's not going to understand my struggle of trying to talk to him and wash/dry my hair at the same time- or how skilled I must've been to do that for sometime😂
#3 - The Shorter Legs Thing😂
Yesterday, we were walking to the bus stop and they were being little shits just to annoy me as usual, running away from me😂And I was trying to explain to them that it's already a struggle to keep up with them because I have little legs compared to them but no, no, they just didn't get it, it wasn't:
"Spidey, we know we'll slow down"😂
"Spidey, your struggle is real smh"😂
It was more like:
"You're following me" (even though he was walking to MY bus stop with ME😂)
#4 - How Much They Scare Me
Firstly, when we walk to the bus stop from college and there's usually fountains on. Yesterday, no fountains were on- so what do they decide to do?
Walk on the fucking fountains even though water could potentially squirt up and take them out😂
And what's worse is they made me stand on one just to "prove a point"😂
Do you want to know what was even worse than that? They proved their point- but the fear was still there😂
And then one went to his bus stop, and one was walking with me to my bus stop because he doesn't usually catch my bus but needed to because he was going somewhere else not his house. Anyway, he was standing on the edge of the pavement right near where the bus comes and top telling me he's a: "Magician" and pretending to fall off the pavement😂
Now at the time, that was really scary because if a bus came and just:
He would've been a goner but he was willing to take that risk just to scare me😂
#5 - I Mean This In A Nice Way But Sometimes They Make Me Want To Punch Them👊🏾😂
I just told you about two situations above- well those are the type of things that make me want to punch them😂
But if I was to punch them for that they'd be like:
Or I could've gotten up yesterday when he had the nerve to tell me that The Flash was better than Spider-Man and been like BAM! Straight in the face😂But:
A) I'm too lazy for that
B) I had people backing me up
C) No violence in the classroom
D) He's stronger than me so I wasn't gonna take any chances😂
Any Last Words?
That's pretty much it for this MyTake, again I hope you enjoyed and I hope you could relate in some way- and if not, well I hope this was a good read for you anyways😂
I'm gonna go eat now😂
Thank you for reading :) <3
