Idea inspired by my Wonderful Husband – Pierre-Jean Carosin
Every book needs a beginning, so here it is.
DEALING WITH IT
We all have to deal with it. It comes and goes, and it is always a relief. There is always an end in sight, so it is not something that envelopes one in depressive darkness. If
you find yourself becoming unreasonable, take a pill. (Some have got traces of dynamite so do be moderate!)
FAILING TO DEAL WITH IT
That means that this chapter is relevant as you strain with your own problem. Yes, you made it for yourself. There are always signs that one must deal with something immediately, and
you chose to put off some urgent business. Deal with it.
THE LONG DROP
Walking the plank, or bungee jumping? Some things we are attached to, and some we are not. There should be no emotional ties that bind you to do any of the above, so thank your lucky
stars that it is something you can avoid with careful panning… sorry, planning!
LEAVES AND OTHER MYSTERIES
In your emergency, you have become one with nature. Remember, you get out what you put in – sometimes more than you bargained for, but look at it as a bonus…
LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN
This is an option practiced by many. There are those who have no time to close the door, let alone secure it; there are those who couldn’t care less what any one thinks; and there are those
who need the ventilation. It is always wise to leave a door open behind you, though.
BOOK OR LAPTOP?
One's just gotta keep up with technology! Hee hee.
ONE FOR ALL…
Keeping everything bottled up inside is not good for one. And, a polite interruption is not considered rude and can be accommodated by a little shifting… of schedules…
There comes a time in every one’s life when a little humility is called for. We are what we are… Amen
It is good to run away from an unfair fight. No shame in that at all. But if you choose to turn the other cheek, it is also considered fair.
It is good for a human being to experience the feeling of having no encumbering clothing restricting one’s movements. There are special places for people like that. Not every one wants
CREATING A MOVEMENT
The moment must be right. Trust your gut feeling.
It’s lucky for some, and unlucky for others. Just deal with it.
Thinking about your problem helps a lot, especially when it all works out in the end.
THE HOT SEAT
Avoiding confrontation and the ideal way to have some quiet time, and a word of thanks for the hot seat doesn’t go unnoticed.
ARTS AND CRAFTS
Looking at your work can give enormous satisfaction, especially when there’s nothing on teevee…
GIVING IT CARROTS
Verbalisation has its rewards. Don’t be a vegetable and suppress your creativity.
Ten minutes is one’s recommended time period to expel old ghosts, so don’t give in to the idea that something else is better that what you are doing. We all need throne time.
Didn’t you get the previous chapter?
No matter how many friends you have, only you can do it!

You’re not a horse, but when you gotta go, you gotta go.

Chapter Twenty Six
There’s Hide ‘n Seek, Peek-a-boo, Tok-tokkie, General Knowledge, etc.
Chapter Twenty Seven
OTHER ROYAL SEATS
Always treat, with respect, the honour of emergency seating
Chapter Twenty Eight
UP OR DOWN
The best way to overcome this frustration is to communicate once and for all and come to an amicable agreement.
Chapter Twenty Nine
Yes, we all do, so don’t make an issue out of it: write a book or make a movie!
What a boytjie! Don’t we all wish we could just drop off like that? Of course, the rings are part of the bargain.
Chapter Thirty One
DOWN AND DIRTY
There’s nothing like a white canvas…
Chapter Thirty Two
Some people put it there and some people dig it out…
Chapter Dirty Three
SHARING AND TIPS
Remember, not every one likes the same things you do… but some times call for a little something to be left behind…

Chapter Fifty Two
