Okay, so you’ve gotten into a bit of a mess. It happens. Sometimes you just have to get a little dirty.
I mean really, sometimes the messes you find yourself in actually find YOU. It’s just unavoidable.
At the end of the day, however, this level of grime means only one thing: BATH TIME. Let the emotional roller-coaster begin.
1. The first stage of bath-time grief is Denial. As the tub starts to fill with water, your natural instinct is to avoid the inevitable.
Even as you get forced unceremoniously into the bubbles, you cannot fathom that this is happening to you. The world suddenly seems meaningless. You are numb.
Remember that denial is a very natural reaction to bath-time trauma. Your first line of defense in the face of such loss is to push it away from your consciousness.
2. Stage two of bath-time grief is Anger. You’ve accepted that this is happening, but you’re not happy about it.
You feel the need to lash out against those closest to the event that has caused you pain. Your humans are the logical recipients of this wrath.
