"At 13 years old, I went to play softball with my team on Saturday...nothing unusual. I wore my white shorts and white shirt, and pitched and struck out – even with my strange stomach ache.
But, when I got home and went to change my clothes, there was a puddle of red sitting in my shorts. I knew what it was but, of course, didn't know how many people at the ball field knew also! Here's me wearing white around that time once again, though I knew better by then."
