Oh love! It can be such an amazing experience. Unless you’re sobbing in the corner of your tub like a telenovela star.
He didn’t want me! He cheated! He couldn’t get it up! So many reasons to cry away the mascara, chicas.
A breakup is the perfect time to use humor. Laughter cures all, including a broken heart. Instead of slashing his tires or jumping out of a taxi cab to catch him mid-flirt, invite your girls over and have a good laugh. Need advice on just how? Here are 5 ways to find the funny in heartache.
1. Pin the Tale on Your Donkey of an Ex
Go to your local 99 Cents store and buy a Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Print out a photo of your ex. Enlarge it at your local pharmacy and replace the donkey’s head with this ass. The “tail” can be anything you want it to be, like a penis or funny words that describe your ex. You and your girls will have a blast as you pin a giant dildo over his head.
2. Sex Toy Parties
Speaking of dildos sex toy parties are fun all on their own. Mix some funny ex-boyfriend talk (“I so wish his penis was as big as this!”) and you’ll forget why you wanted him in the first place. Buy yourself a vibrator while you’re at it. It will zap your heartache away in 30.5 seconds, depending on how powerful the vibrations.
3. Watch a hilarious stand-up comedy special.
There’s nothing like a funny stand-up comedy special to heal the heart. I recently watched Joe Koy, a Filipino comedian, on Comedy Central. He was so funny, I cried from laughter. I wasn’t heartbroken. My boyfriend and I watched it on a Saturday night. But I promise you it is so funny your only though will be to find a Filipino man to datew. (Are they all that funny?!!!) If your man is Filipino, tune into Kevin Hart.
4. Recall all the absurd things your ex did.
When you were a couple, your ex did plenty of absurd things that irritated the crap out of you. Write them down. Make fun of them. Feel blessed that you don’t have to deal with him doing any of these things again.
5. Good old Mad Libs.
This is another great idea for a night-in with your girls. Create your own Mad Libs on this site. The story can be about you and your ex. I say pick from the list of absurd things that he did. Let your girls go to town on that Mad Lib. Read the stories aloud. What they come up with will make you laugh so hard your heart will mend before you know it.
