I keep a copy of my very own Keep Calm poster on my phone. You know, in case I get trapped in a lift or locked in a haunted house with a bunch of Glee fanatics. There are, of course, spoof versions which spring to mind: Conjure a patronus and carry on, Keep calm and drink up, Bloody hell we’re buggered now...
My favourite would have to be Now panic and freak out. It appeals to the side of me that gets sick of being so sensible, of being so chin up and on we go.
Every now and again there are times when dropping everything and doing the comedy running-on-the-spot screaming is GOOD for you. If you find, in your last shopping days, that Keep Calm and Carry on is not an option, go on and have a little freak out. Enjoy it. Embrace the hysterical you. Then suck it up, leave the trolley of stuff no one needs, go home and have a cup of tea.
Happy last minute shopping, decorating and tidying up!
