Hot Mom alerts us she is at Threat Level Orange.
I overheard her discussing this with Friend #3. "Ah," Friend #3 said understandingly as I trailed behind them to the little junk food store in our plaza, "It's an orange week." Hot Mom nodded sadly.
"What's an orange week?" I demanded.
"It's the PMS week before Hot Mom's period. She only eats orange food and drinks orange drinks."
"Like what?" I asked. They listed: "Cheetos," "Goldfish," "'Cheez' flavored anything," "any cheese popcorn but Oke-Doke," "Cheetos" (again), actual cheese (with an 's'), and orange Gatorade.
I don't know what she eats when it escalates to Threat Level Red.
