This is just so funny to me, I was watching the fourth season of Desperate Housewives back in 2008 and this part in one of the episode came up, making me fall into a fist of laughter! Today, I was feeling a little like Susan was feeling at the time, and I couldn't help but remember Bree’s emotional box:
Susan: Oh I just can’t control myself like that.
Bree: Oh, sure you can. Whenever I feel my emotions getting the best of me, I simply picture an empty box and I take whatever I'm feeling and put that in the box. And then, I picture myself putting the box away in a big, empty closet and closing the door. Then, if I have time, I go back and open the box and deal with the emotion, in private, like a lady.
