Where do you breakfast?

'You know those days when you've got the mean reds?'
'Same as the blues?'
'No' she said slowly. 'No, the blues are because you're getting fat or maybe it's been raining too long. You're sad that's all. But the mean reds are horrible. You're afraid and you sweat like hell, but you don't know what you're afraid of...'
'What I've found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany's.' Truman Capote Breakfast at Tiffany's
Where do you go when you've got the mean reds, or hopefully just the blues?

Do you enter the kitchen and bake?

A lie in the bath, perhaps with a book?

A stroll and sit in the open air?

A scent of Jo Malone?
A browse in your favourite book shop?

Or somewhere else?


  1. The mean reds usually put me on the sofa, with a blanket, the dog, a cup of tea and a movie. The blues will find me in much the same place but with a book. I'm not sure why the mean reds require a movie instead but it always ends up that way.

  2. ooh yes a cup of tea is always important... Alcohol will jsut make the tears flow.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
