5 Things to Ask Instead of "Are You PMSing?"

A few months ago my husband and I were having a disagreement and he uttered the words that I didn’t think he was capable of saying.

“Let’s finish this conversation when you’re not PMSing,” he muttered.

And let me tell you, time stood still. And my head spun around Exorcist-like. And we both took a moment of silence when we realized that a barrier has been crossed.

I’m waiting for my legal Dream Team to give me the go ahead to reveal what happened next (by the way, if you’re willing to act as an “alibi witness” please leave a comment below) but in the meantime I’ve compiled a useful list of things that are better to say to your wife/girlfriend/parole officer than “are you PMSing”?

(And yes, I totally was PMSing when my husband made that comment, but so what?)
