Today the Unicode Consortium announced 59 new emojis. Among them is one to represent a woman’s period – a single drop of blood. It’s great, but might I offer some alternatives (perhaps, a bit more accurate):
I will be following some of the traditions like going vegetarian for the day, not cutting my hair, and not swearing — which might be hard.
One tradition I refuse to follow? This business of not bathing. Sorry, but personal hygiene trumps superstition.
On another note, they say that the Year of the Snake is not that great. But I was born in the year of the snake and I say that it’s going to be amazing. So there.
