When I was growing up, I wanted to be a good writer. I thought I was. Until I read this epic think piece from today’s Temple News student newspaper, wherein Writin’ John Corrigan, of “That’s What He Said” fame, inked the instant classic, “Time of the month a time of care.” To wit:
Lying in bed Sunday morning, I’m awoken by sounds much louder than any alarm clock.
Despite stuffing my face with eggrolls mere hours earlier, I hear growling echoing from under the sheets. Lifting my head from the drool-stained pillow, I stare in the face of a lion’s roar.
The agony, the torture, the fading chances of satisfying my morning wood…no!
Before I can escape the comforter’s clutch, my girlfriend’s hand grabs my shoulder. The calendar failed me once again, refusing to mention it’s that time of the month. No one prepares guys for how to handle their ladies’ menstrual cycle.
There’s more. Much MUCH more. Read it here.
UPDATE: Here’s a photo of Corrigan dancing with a lady friend thanks to an astute investigative tipster.
