Bow Tie Tuesday

Today's bow tie (which appeared earlier here here) is peeking out at you, or you in at it, and could serve as an exercise for the OCD in exposure therapy, what with all its crookedidity and unkemptitude and ill-allignediosity.  Do you wish you could fix it?  Does it make you squirm, sweat, want to look away?  Do you wonder whether you can take it?  Is symmetry the way things have to be?  If you answer yes to any of these and/or a whole bunch of other questions, you too may be suffering from a category-whatever-letter-it-is difficulty of the Anxiety group variety.  Mental health professionals in your area may or may not be able to help, and, unfortunately, which way that tennis ball of fate falls doesn't depend entirely on whether you, like the proverbial light bulb, want to change.

However much you exhibit these characteristics, you may want to be careful how much you exhibit these characteristics.

Our advice is to take deep breaths.  Yeah, we advise that a lot, we know.  But it's our advice, a lot.  We figure you're going to be breathing anyway, or else no longer paying your bill, so it seems like a good starting point.

That app you used to breathe in and out with people around the world hasn't been updated for your iPhone's operating system, but oh well.  Are you so lazy that you're unwilling to count for yourself?  Okay maybe counting distracts you from the zoning out and going-second-nature part of the plan, we get that.  Fair enough.

You may not be happy with our current breathing app offerings, but we see you've found that infrared youtubery of "someone sleeping next to you" to supplement those Honest Guys recordings you've used so many nights.  Isn't it funny how your embarrassing recent Big Brother thing led you to that?  See?  It's not all bad, that embarrassment.  Also it passes the time, better than playing a little solitaire.  Anyway, we want you to remember that, app-wise and other-wise, when we close a door, we open a window.  And when we close a window, you need to be able to deal with that!  Our advice is to take deep breaths.
