Sometimes, we all just have one of those days. Everything’s going wrong, everyone you meet seems to want to act like a prick. It feels like the whole world’s out to get you.
When we get frustrated like this, it’s easy to loose your temper and lash out at those around us. But that just leads to unpopularity, self-loathing and criminal charges. If only there was a simple way to get your head straight and cool down…
WELL NOW THERE IS!
Simply close your eyes, take a deep breath, and repeat these words – What Would Chris Do?
Chris’s endless positivity means he always sees the bright side of any situation. He sees everything as a puzzle, so his creative mind comes up with practical solutions. And the fact that he’s a fully qualified prophesying Messiah doesn’t go amiss, neither!
Here’s how it might apply to everyday situations –
* Your girlfriend leaves you and runs off with your best friend, leaving you feeling hollow and wanting to punch their stupid faces until your fists are reduced to mince. What Would Chris Do?
o Have a hot bath with candles and drink a reasonable amount of wine.
o Listen to the greatest breakup album of all time, Running In The Family by Level 42
o Turn the experience into an album of bittersweet college-rock anthems.
* You are watching the Ten O’Clock News one evening, and you become terribly concerned because the situation in the Middle East is worse than ever! It seems as though War is immanent, and therefore the death of innocent children. What Would Chris Do?
o Donate the maximum tax-deductable amount to a reputable charity.
o Get Sting and Bono in to record “Do They Know it’s Ramadan?”
o Rename Islamabad “Islamagood”.
* You are coming out of a hotel, a little tired and emotional, and a paparazzo takes your photograph. What Would Chris Do?
o Hide under a puffa jacket with a large hood and sunglasses.
o Shout at the pap about “Respect”.
o Scratch his car with a key and chase him down the street.
Over to you – tell us how you’ve done something differently by asking, What Would Chris Do? AMEN.
