Whenever we get bad news, we do what most people do – lock ourselves in our room and play rock music until our bottom lip stops wobbling. But for more emotionally balanced people, a quiet drink with a friend can work wonders.
The only problem is; in your distressed (and slightly sozzled) state it’s easy to lose track of how much you’ve had. Or indeed, what it is you’re actually feeling. Which is where the Good Grief Glasses come in handy.
Graduated like a measuring jug, this pair of glasses guides you, mood by mood, through the full gamut of grief from ‘Aaagh!” to “Aaaah”. Just find a sympathetic ear, top your glasses up to Denial and work your way down; taking in Anger, Bargaining, Depression and eventually, Acceptance. Give it a try; it’s remarkably cathartic! Just like counting to ten in your head, only it’s with a friend and you both end up in a kebab shop.
The perfect gift for your resident gloomy guts, or anyone that likes a good natter over a drink; they’re a wonderfully whimsical way to unwind after a heavy day. Hey, why the long face?
