Jacket tied on waist,

Standing in the empty train -

Bargaining with blood.

    Somehow I missed this one! I have to say that cover photo made me squirm from discomfort😂 I think every female has a personal horror story to share on this topic haha. But it’s almost as bad when everything is actually under control and your imagination makes you think it looks like a whole murder scene on your pants which I’m sure we can all also relate to😂 Anyway, great entry! I loved that last line, it sounds like a song or book title or something.

  • Oh, those moments are HORRIBLE! Bargaining with blood, what a good way to put it xx

    Omg! That cover photo! This one is so raw, but I laughed at how relatable it is. Great one, Suze.

    I am so glad that's not something I have to deal with. Funny, I just mentioned a coupe of days ago that I have loaned my jacket on occasion. Great entry!
