Girl Problems vs Lack of Girl Problems
In high school an insightful friend asked why I was down. "Girl problems?" he guessed. I said no and he guessed, "Lack of girl problems?" To this day, I'm not sure which is worse. Back then our high school days were divided between A.C.E. days and B.D.F. days. The ACE/BDF system meant your classes were scheduled on a 6-day system that you pushed to a 5-days week, so your classes rotated between three and two days per week. The point is that if your girlfriend split up with you on an ACE week and you had several ACE classes together, then things couldn't get much worse. Add to that your shared health class where they have you put condoms on cucumbers and things get even more awkward.
