28 days

This is an actual conversation I had with my husband the other day.

"We were watching TLC the other day at work, some show about female things, did you know that women don't have their periods for 6 days, it's actually 28 days long."

Me: (And those of you who know me, this is said in my dead serious but sarcastic voice coupled with a straight face. Yes, the same one I use on patients every day I'm at work)
"Wow, really?"

"Yeah, the whole cycle actually lasts for 28 days. I guess that's why most women are so f-----d all of the time, because every day of the month they're having some sort of hormone changes."

Me: (Same face)
Dead silence.

More silence (cue crickets chirping in the background)

Me still today:
Shocked and silent.

Really, what do you say to that? How is it that a well educated man, who's 35 with THREE children didn't know that? I blame the public school system.
