Bad Period The fourth grade teacher was pulling up the young boy for having missed the previous period. She shouted at him: "Do you know how important a period is?" The boy answered non chalantly. "I know that very well, Ma'am. For my sister missed her periods. You will never believe this. My mother fainted, my father had a heart attack and our driver ran away." Good Period A marriage counsellor was taking a sex-reorientation class for men in their forties. To break ice, he asked the class about the frequency of their sexual activity. A soberly dressed banker said "About once a month" A company executive said "About once a fortnight" An young Stockbroker said "Twice a week." The question passed around with everyone giving very serene and sober answers. There was a fiftyish man sitting in the back row who was jumping and literally dancing in the class. When it was his turn to answer, he jumped out of his seat, made a dancing movement, bowed the teacher and said, "Exactly once in a year." "Then what's the reason for so much joy?" "You know, Sir, today is THE DAY."
