Sometimes in life you just want a yelling box…You know when you have had a tough week at work, maybe your people are driving you bananas or it has been one crap storm after the other. What is a yelling box, you ask? Please allow me to paint a picture.
A yelling box could be one of the greatest inventions of all time. This is a box made to size that is padded, soundproof and probably not clear. I say not clear b/c maybe you will be looking ugly when you yell…or making obscene gestures or perhaps you just don’t want anyone to see you flinging your arms around like a crazy person….wait…that is what i look like when i’m mad. My yelling box would be a beautiful wooden box that my brother would make-he is a lovely wood smith? wood maker? Anyways, he can make all kinds of crap and its awesome-check him out on facebook. But it would probably be in the cherry family, with a cute door and probably a bit like a curvy wardrobe.
The purpose of this box would be for me to step in and let it out. sometimes, i get so frustrated at either myself or someone or something going on around me. i get this tense knot in my right shoulder and i could either scream or cry. I try to hold it in b/c i don’t like me when i’m mad. i like me when i’m happy, funny and laughing.
i think boxes could probably save alot of marriages and relationships. think about it, you could go in and rip your significant other or friend a new one-say all the things you really wouldn’t want to say to hurt their feelings (or maybe you would, who knows) and then step out of it feeling refreshed and violence free….i may be onto something here….the possibilities are endless:
Teachers: OH CRAP! THESE KIDS ACT LIKE THEY AIN’T GOT NO KIND OF SENSE! DID YOU EVEN DO YOUR HOMEWORK? OH, YOU GOT LOST GOING TO THE BATHROOM….UUUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHH
Wife/Husband: DON’T YOU DARE SAY, “FINE” B/C I KNOW IT’S NOT! WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON’T LIKE MY MOTHER? OH, NO…HE IS YOUR SON-YOU GO TO THE POLICE STATION.
Co-Workers- OH, SURE…JUST TAKE ALL THE CREDIT WHILE I DO ALL THE WORK….YES, I HAVE PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND BUT SURE…I’LL COME IN AND DO YOUR JOB…
man…i don’t even fit all of those categories and i feel better….so, what about you? what is your yelling box?
