So I have been trying to figure out how to breach this very delicate subject. I vote that we change the way we look at women and that special time they have once a month dubbed the period. When one thinks of a period they think of finality period suggests that something is over. But as we all know a period is just the beginning so I vote that from now on we call the period the exclamation point!
Wikipedia gives us this definition: An exclamation point is a punctuation mark: ! It is usually used after an interjection or exclamation to indicate strong feelings or high volume, and generally marks the end of a sentence. A sentence ending in an exclamation mark is either an actual exclamation ("Wow!", "Boo!"), a command ("Stop!"), or is intended to be astonishing in some way ("They were the footprints of a gigantic hound!")
Now read the definition again and think about it as a womanly thing. Strong feelings, high volume, Wow!, Boo!, for the love of all that’s holy STOP! That’s right it perfectly describes this delicate time and the frame of reference that all men should have towards it. Marking it as a period is just unfair. So I vote that all men everywhere begin to call it the exclamation point (just not anywhere your wife can hear you).
