The sadly hilarious thing about being stressed and tired is that I'm now at that age where I really know myself and in times like these, my naughty old coping mechanisms rear their ugly, bulbous noggins again. I'll admit it: I am an emotional eater & online shopper. Because, obviously, those are both things that you can do in front of your work computer. I like to think that I'm at the maturity level where I can catch and control this, but it's actually quite comical to see how it manifests itself. Amazon Prime (and any other online store that has fast and free delivery) becomes your best friend AND worst enemy. Case in point, so far this week, I have bought saddle cleaner, saddle oil, three different coloured mugs, and a padlock. Might as well throw in the partridge in the pear tree.* I know many of you have kindly told me that you share this personality quirk (even just to make me feel better about myself), so tell me, what is the best/funniest/most random thing that you've bought under stress?
*Christmas references already? I know, tsk tsk shame on me.
