    We never had any good sayings when I was young; it was just something you tried to ignore. I appreciate the cleverness of a good nickname even more now.

  6. I laughed most at #6 and #8. Great list! We didn't have any good sayings either. I think we said, "That time of the month," if we had to say anything at all. We mostly just tried to avoid talking about it as much as possible.

  7. I love "Taking Carrie to the Prom" because it encompasses all the rage one feels :-)

  8. I couldn't have said it better myself, Tracie. That Carrie has a lot to answer for.
