This is a condensed version of the lyrics of Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day”.
And maybe today is not one of my best ones. Give me any extreme emotion and I burst into tears, good or bad.
Too bad. I wanted to make it happen. But maybe for this special case, apathy is the best thing for me.
It just made me remember my hierarchy of comfort food.
1st level – COFEE: Useful for normal day-to-day stress, warm, can be sipped over a longer period of time – hopefully the time it takes to calm down.
2nd level – ICE CREAM: The best kind’s McDonald’s plain sundae cone. It’s a cheap treat (cheaper than a coffee I realize…) and it literally cools you down. Plus it’s sweet and is easily associated with fun times during childhood.
3rd level – PIZZA: Okay, something heavier. Best over long discussions with friends. You can pick on the cheese, eat the toppings one by one and just feel your frustration go away with each bite. I don’t know. There’s something about melted cheese that’s just comforting.
4th level – WINE/ ALCOHOL: I’ve only ever reached this high in terms of my need for comfort. This is for those times when you want to easily and temporarily forget so that when you remember, you’ll be a little more detached from it already and you can plan what to do afterwards. Besides, trying to decode and appreciate wine and knowing how much had to be paid for it is enough to preoccupy me.
