So today is officially they claim (they, who are they anyhow?) is the most depressing day of the year.
Well whoopdy doo! Any more good news experts, whoever you are?
I for one say let’s just raise our cup of tea, glass of wine, chocolate biscuit or whatever your fix is, and say a big “screw you” to these so called experts.
Apparently today is Blue Monday because we are as a nation depressed because of the cold weather – hello it isn’t any colder than yesterday!
Most of us have ditched our resolutions – eh no, mine were done by day 3. Sorry I am particularly weak and that chocolate bar was calling my name.
Summer seems such a long way off too and that’s another reason to make us blue. Eh, experts have you visited or do you live in Ireland?
Because guess what, even in July, we can’t guarantee good weather. In fact we can’t guarantee it won’t be as cold as October.
Oh, we’re broke too, and that’s getting us down, say the January blues lot.
Well, again, me and mostly everyone I know is usually broke.
If I have spare money, I’ll usually buy a nice new pair of runners or high heels anyhow, so easy come…
For those who are with me, let’s all put Blue Monday by New Order on the old You Tube, record player or blast out the CD.
Because quite frankly the only reason some of us are annoyed today is we are sick of marketing people telling us how we should feel on a particular day!
I feel good. I feel fine and I will have that glass of wine! Sing it with me…
And I’m extra annoyed at the experts taking the name of one of the best songs in history in vain.
Now, how do you feel?
