Sometimes when experiencing something highly emotional, we make symbolic gestures to make us feel a bit better. For example, we might rub our tummy or clutch our abdomen when feeling unwell or insecure.
This is the same when perhaps we are overwhelmed with excited energy and need a physical outlet as a release. For example, jumping up and down or applauding with glee. Fist bump the air and call out “heck yeah!”
For me, it’s all just in my head. I can be obsessive, impulsive, incessant, hopeless and relentless when stuck in an episode of fucking depression.
So, I’ll point stuff at my head… as if to tell it to not do that thingy or I will threaten it with a thingy!
Just like in the graphic. Blow away your tears and fears with some style!
2. Your fingers.
It might be rude to point, but I assure you the fucker in my head doesn’t deserve polite! Point point point, make finger and hand signs at it.
3. A camera.
Gotta capture a snapshot of some smiles, and part of your soul. Ready for a selfie on a stick? Is that how the term is used?
4. A glock.
Steve Zissou issues everyone with their own, unless you’re an unpaid intern who has to share with the others… get yours today!
You are being interrogated. Mother fucker. Or, it’s time for your special solo. Dance and sing for me, monkey!
6. Laser sight.
If you don’t perform to a satisfactory standard, you will be sniped. Snipered? Err… attacked by dozens of kitty claws who want to catch the laser!
Stab you. I mean cut you. Your hair. At the salon.
Because the salon. Untangle your knots, try to be somewhat presentable.
9. Ice pick.
Lobotomy. Do it at home to pass the savings on to you.
10. Death stare.
Send out the evil eye to enter someone else’s mind and in their mind will be born a curse. The darkness and sadness of the eternal empty before your eyes for the rest of your life.
I am lonely. Suffer with me.
