How to Stand in a Corner – Advice #115

Don’t forget to wear orthopedic shoes, as you will be here for a great deal of time and blisters are painful. The most important thing is to not think about the act that sentenced you to time out in the corner. If you spend time thinking about this, they win. Instead, spend time thinking about how you can do whatever it is that got you in trouble in a way that will not get you caught again.

Aside from punishment, there are alternate reasons to stand in a corner: 1) a day that has been nearly impossible 2) the suffering of vertigo 3) agoraphobia 4) adopting the ostrich philosophy and thinking that by hiding your face in the corner of a room, your angry significant other cannot find and destroy you.
