Mum's menopause made her mad. She complained loudly about hot flushes and stripped off in public.
When anyone looked askance she'd snarl, 'Bloody menopause.'
I asked her to be discreet.
'Hah! Half the population have to endure this. Why the hell are we forced to treat it like a dirty secret?'
'You embarrass everyone.'
'In that case it's time we pushed the boundaries.'
I rolled my eyes. What now?
'We need a campaign to push this out in the open. Women and men have to unite against these ridiculous taboos.'
But deep down I knew she was right.
I hope you enjoyed this story and found it thought provoking. I look forward to your comments.
