I am eight weeks and craving an ice cream.

What does “I am ____ weeks and craving ___” Facebook status mean?

Have you ever seen a female friend of yours posted such status on her Facebook profile?  Does this mean that your friend is pregnant and craving for a candy bar?   Before you start speculating and posting the “Congratulations” comment as a reply,  please read the explanation below.

You’ll write  :  I’m_____ (your birth month) weeks and I’m craving ____ (your birth date) as your status.  The blanks are filled in with a number and a treat that is defined by your birthday.    For example: For a February 8th birthday, the Facebook status will say “I’m 2 weeks and craving Lolipop.”

Such Facebook statuses is in effort to raise Breast Cancer Awareness. Sometime ago, I had seen people posting the color of their bra as their status for the same purposes.  Don’t get me wrong.  I know women who had fought (and are still fighting) the battle of breast cancer and many survived.  I have all of the respect in the world for them; but what does this birthday thingy have to anything do with breast cancer?   At least bra colors are linked to breasts; but this?  Dislike.
