Bad days are pretty unavoidable
Being able to find an uplifting frivolity (if not an ironic ridiculousness) through it all can somehow make the day more bearable. In this case for me, relief came in the form of a materialistic possession. New boots! Every time I looked down, I had to smile.
How not to do this
Breaking in a tight new pair of stilettos on a long day out or at work… could add to the potential misery of a bad day e.g. being momentarily crippled.
