A person suffering from hypochondriasis, in which they over-react to normal bodily functions (ex: sweating or scabbing), confuse normal Common Cold symptoms for symptoms of more serious illnesses (ex: H1N1 or Whooping Cough), and generally act paranoid when a sneezing life form gets within 10 feet of them.
Person A: Oh no! I'm sneezing! I MUST have Swine Flu!
Person B: Simmer down, Hypochondriac, it's just the pollen in the air.
Person A: There's pollen in the air!? I'm gonna DIEEE!
Period Pals are two or more women who receive "nature's gift" at the same time.
Usually they hang out with each other, participating in activities one normally does alone when on their period; such as watching Leonardo DiCaprio movies in the fetal position or complaining about how the cramps this month are worse than any other woman's ever experienced in the history of menstruation.
Sue: Tom invited me out to dinner, but I had to decline because I'm on the rag.
May: Really? Why, Sue, it looks like we're Period Pals this week! Want to come over to my place and eat some Cherry Garcia ice cream? I think the Sex and the City movie is on on demand tonight.
