Why the hell get a cake and celebrate a girl bleeding for a week every month? What is there to celebrate. i have to agree about celebraing everything and recognizing someone for doing nothing. I mean its puberity. It is just something that happens. Did they at least get some money off for it being spelled wrong?
As a woman who didn’t get cake her first period, I gotta say this was a good idea. After I got done with all the cramps and vomiting, I could totally go for a slice of misspelled cake! Right upside the head of whoever gave it to me.
This is great. My friend said her husband asked if he should go get their daughter a card or something, he thought is was a special occassion; I bet if he saw this cake, he would have bought it. For me, I was so embarassed I didn’t even want to tell my mother, much less have a cake announcing the
typical puritanical Americans. Little girls have to be ashamed of periods and it should never be talked about. Little boys have to be ashamed of getting erections when they are falling asleep in math class. These are natural animal bodily functions. Accept them and move on.
My father bought me flowers and took me out for ice cream when I started my period. He did that for my three sisters as well. At the time, I was a little embarrassed, but looking back at it, I am so glad he did. It is a huge milestone for young women and can be scary. I was glad to know it wasn’t something to be scared of, but rather something to be proud of.
That being said, I think I would have run out of the room crying if my father brought home a misspelled cake for me to show off to the family. At least the flowers stayed in my room and the ice cream was private.
