Recipe for how to cure a bad day: here's how I do it
Step 1. Call your best friend and tell her everything. This may be all you need to do. However, if it's really bad or if she happens not to be home, proceed to step 2.
Step 2. Have a long hard cry, really get to heaving and snivelling. Do this by yourself or you could upset people. Please don't skip this step even though it's the most embarassing because it is critical to the success of the project.
Step 3. Take a nice hot shower and wash everything. Wash your hair, shave your legs, exfoliate anything that might need it. Use all of your best smelly items, the ones you save for a special occasion. This is a special occasion, see step 2.
Step 4. Put on snuggly pajamas and pour yourself a glass of champagne.
Step 5. Order your favorite take-out food and watch your favorite dvd. By this time you should be feeling much better, or at least I do. You can commence cuddling with whoever happens to be handy: husband, cat, whatever.
