Because we all need them sometimes and the more information is out there, the better…
Watch reruns of The Big Bang Theory and regularly observe people tell/ ask/ shout at Sheldon that he’s acting or sounds like a crazy person. It’ll put things into perspective. Although, as we all know know, he’s not crazy, his mother had him tested. Plus he’s very keen on hygiene, which is, of course, an inspiration to us all in these times in particular, though I’d still like to think certain standards should always be in place and I don’t wish good things on the person I know left the bathroom at one of my jobs without washing her hands. Off topic, but important to note.
Sarcasm is a fine art worth mastering and it usually helps in any situation, because it takes your mind off the immediateness of it, though there’s a huge difference between being sarcastic and being mean (which is obviously a topic for a whole other blog post). Being sarcastic, when done skillfully, benefits from a connection to humor, which always makes anything better, even if you’re just saying things to yourself (that’s not crazy).
It’s true, breathing helps. So go for it! No paper bags necessary, though I guess that’s a matter of preference. If you’re not sure which technique to pursue, the internet will help.
This is all just material for future novel(s). It’s being given to us, free of charge. All we have to do is absorb, like a sponge. We’re artists in training, creative souls, travelers on the highway of the universe and surely the only reason we have to listen to/ look at/ are currently witnesses to this crap is because it might get some laughs written down.
If all else fails, just laugh at it all. But not in a way that will make people think you are crazy.
