Look what came in the mail today and is going to be happening to Risa this week. Hello, 70s flashbacks, and here's hoping for a "normal" conversation that doesn't bring horror ("the blood comes from inside you"), hysteria ("sometimes boys get an erection for no reason at all"), or a downright refusal to grow up ("by the time you are 13 or 14, your hormones are working overtime on your sebaceous glands"). But, uh, you get to pick a super pretty bra and not experience an erection in front of your whole classroom?
