I HATE the adult coloring books.
Ugh. I get stressed out just thinking about them. They are everywhere. I hear grown-ass people talking about how calming and relaxing it is to just get ‘lost’ in coloring.
What the HELL?
Someone gifted me one of these books for Christmas a few years ago, so, I decided to try it out. I started coloring. Then about 30 seconds later, I started freaking out about how much more I had to color to complete the picture, because you can’t just leave the thing half colored, right?
So, about 2 minutes into coloring, I had a panic attack. Great. Very relaxing. NOT! You know what is relaxing? Crown and Coke. Patron. Mojitos. Beer. Netflix. Kindle Unlimited.
Besides, I have stacks and stacks of drawings from my 9 and 3 year old that I can look at and relax while having my Crown and Coke (you can’t ever throw that shit away either, they seem to have a 6th sense and KNOW when you throw a drawing away)! AND, you can’t tell them to stop making pictures for you because it would crush their artistic spirit and make you seem like a shitty (or shitty-er) mom.
And, while I’m on this rant, who has time to color? What do you do that you have enough free time to just color? Is coloring fun for you? How old are you? Do you have kids? Where do you work? How do you not stress out?
Also, my kids always wanted to ‘help’ color and that was even more stressful. So, booze + Netflix + Kindle = calming and relaxing.
