I am looking through a magazine. It is a magazine for women.
Note: Some people still read magazines, you know. Actually, I have several magazine subscriptions. Because I don’t know how to stop them from renewing. They just keep coming. Year after year. To infinity and beyond.
The article is providing valuable information on How to Live Well Everyday and it provides 10 Instant Destressors for today’s busy woman.
Note: I may or may not have been using the toilet at the time.
And I may or may not be a busy woman. But I bustle about, here and there, fretting about everything I need to get done, playing the part quite nicely.
And then I find my favorite suggestion of all.
Additional Note: Not really. It’s actually a little odd.
Give yourself a time-out, it says. Set the alarm on your phone for 5 minutes, find a quiet place (even if it’s a bathroom stall) and just sit and breathe deeply.
Really? Sit in a bathroom stall? And breathe deeply? Where other people are doing their business?
Theoretically, however, I could kill a lot of birds with just one stone as I sit in the stall breathing deeply with my clothing unrestricted for obvious reasons while burning a scented to candle to cover the scent of well, you know, and enjoying my sugarless gum and calling a friend on my cellphone to chat because who doesn’t think it’s classy to talk on the phone in a public restroom of all places and laughing, oh yes? There will be laughing.
Note: I think it’s time to figure out how to cancel all those subscriptions.
