I heart guts, too!

10.24.2009

I’m not sure if I have a favorite internal organ, but a couple of my favorite phrases of late have been: “Ugh. Excuse me while I throw my uterus in the trash” and “That makes me want to rip my ovaries right out!” ** So, although I sometimes make mention of a couple of my reproductive organs, I can’t say they’re my absolute favorite organs in my entire body. Not that I need a favorite, just sayin’. Regardless, I love this site full of cute internal organ plushies, stickers, t-shirts, etc. I really like the pins. I discovered the super cool IHeartGuts.com while reading this post on Jezebel today. OMG — I am in love with this chart/amazing illustration of a lady’s monthly cycle. I love the cartoonish-ness of it, I love the scientific explanations and I love the colors. I got to experience my very own monthly “day one” this week, and the ensuing events have been a total pain in the ass (figurative ass pain, literal gut pain), but this chart makes it all seem so happy and cheerful and necessary. Which, I know it totally is, but that doesn’t mean I feel like celebrating my womanhood during this lively monthly occurrence.

ps — in addition to coveting the pins and plushies, I want this poster, too. Maybe it would be a fun gift for my godson. Or maybe I need it for myself. Something to ponder.

**I don’t know why I say these things — the context varies. Also, I don’t know when/why I started using them. They’re not particularly funny or endearing. People usually respond with a look of confusion and/or mild disgust, or by smiling politely.

    My favorite guy time affectionate term is “I’ll punch you right in the ovaries”

      That reminds me of a time when a suitor told me he had HPV and my response was, “That’s too bad, I hope your cervix doesn’t shrivel up and fall out.” He didn’t get it, which made me laugh really hard.
