funny midlife womenHormones –  Produced by one tissue and conveyed by the bloodstream to another to effect physiological activity, such as growth or metabolism. Diminishing Estrogen levels result in awful  symptoms for midlife women. A laugh or two concerning menopause might just make it easier, at least for just a moment. Happy Friday!

A study conducted by UCLA’s Department of Psychiatry …

…has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For example, if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features.

However, if she is menstruating or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire.

No further studies are expected.

**I think Paul gets the whole menopause thing. This just to goes to show you women can fix anything with duct tape too!
