    Definitely team colon! Always thought it was her much more elegant way of saying 'I practise cognitive behavioural therapy ie I cannot always control what happens to me but I can control how I react to it.'
    Also wanted to note that Clyde, being an avatar of Persephone, is in some ways the eternal damsel in distress, who gives and gives but rarely gets anything in return; some quintessential Clyde songs would include Black Swan, Mother, Cloud On My Tongue, Maybe California, and The Power of Orange Knickers. (Yes, I do assign non-ADP songs to particular Dolls…) XD

      not sure if you knew, but we read your interpretation on our LE Wrap Up episode!! xx

    Oh wow I always had a different interpretation than either of the ones mentioned.

    I've always taken the "secret to life"/"I'm okay when everything is not okay" line to mean "the only time I'm okay is when I'm in crisis; I'm addicted to crisis; if life doesn't provide me with one I will gladly create my own."

    Y'know? We have all known (or even been) people like this before. Those who are never content. Those who are "only happy when it rains" to quote another 90s legend ;).
