My friend Daphne is having a bad day. Someone (who we shall call "Miranda") drove her so crazy that she punched the phone. So, being the friend I am, I tried to help... via gmail chat:
me: Sounds like you need to go outside, find a park, raise your arms above your head as you face the sky, screaming your lungs out. Or go throw darts at Miranda's face...
[about 15 minutes later] Daphne: Hey, it worked!
me: Which one?
Daphne: The first.
me: Screaming is always good - less destructive too. Of course, the homeless people in the park might think you belong there...
Daphne: They high fived me
me: LOL - excellent! you're making new friends! LOL
Daphne: yeah. They agreed Miranda's a bitch.
And my work is done...
