Now I'm not saying getting one's period should be embarrassing - hello, boys! After all, it's something that 51% of the world's population is subject to. (There are still more females in the world than males, right?) But if a person were to be embarrassed by it, I can't imagine any more embarrassing circumstances in which to get one's period than when one is supposed to be a boy!
Well, that's what I've got today: not my embarrassment, but rather my poor character's. Now it's your turn:
QUESTION OF THE DAY: WHAT'S AN EMBARRASSING TALE THAT HAS BEFALLEN YOU OR, IF YOU'RE A WRITER, ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS?
Oh, and as a side note: Just so you know, The Education of Bet is not just about periods. It's also about fishing, cricket, fencing, friendship, romance, bravery, and going after your heart's desire, no matter what the obstacles.
Be well. Don't forget to write.
