Apparently these are a thing. They are posters of cute, little descriptive monsters, to assist children to understand emotions such as anger, or sadness.
So I wondered what I felt like this morning. I woke up this Sunday morning, hangover free, so I suppose I could associate with yellow ‘Happy Monster’.
Last Sunday morning I was very, very hungover, but unfortunately they don’t appear to have a tired, depressed, suicidal, paranoid, nauseous, green skinned, yellow eyed ‘Hangover Monster’. Shame.
So the best I can do to describe the positive benefits of being alcohol free for a week is this: last Sunday, I felt (and probably looked) like ‘Frankinstein’s Monster’, improperly awoken from death; today I felt like the ‘Honey Monster’, from the Sugar Puffs advert – GRRREAT! (Hopefully, I don’t look like him.)
Stick to the plan S. Don’t question the decision. Don’t think about alcohol. Don’t drink alcohol.
N.b. We are now far too health consious to give our kids Sugar Puffs, so they are now referred to as Honey Monster Puffs (Discalimer).
