Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cramp.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
One of the joys (not) of being female with the dreaded monthlies!
Teachers were unsympathetic and told us to exercise more. Sometimes all I wanted to do was curl up in a warm bed with a hot water bottle! So glad all that’s behind me now.
Of course there are different kinds of cramp…….like muscles going into spasm.
This can happen at the most inopportune of moments (you can use your own imagination here, and as long as it isn’t actually you rolling about in agony, it’s hilarious to the onlooker).
However, when you or your partner are woken up by it and can’t get back to sleep, we tend to be more sympathetic.
Then there is the cramping of one’s style, getting in the way or making the wrong comment at the wrong time.
Cramp can happen to anyone at any time and for any reason.
It’s painful, awkward, annoying, can be funny (depends who you’re with) and a damn nuisance.
