My Smartass Self Has to Come Out Somewhere. . .
Better to let it out here, rather than have it leak out on my husband, or boss, or friends. From what I have seen in the more controversial forums and stories, I don't think I am alone in this!
It's sort of like in the movie Barfly. The Bukowski character goes into bars and picks fights, just for the sheer exhilaration of it. He gets the **** kicked out of him, but he has a smile on his face the whole time. Every now and then, I go into a group I completely disagree with and start something, and I see others doing this. The difference between us and the Barfly character is that we always leave the bar thinking we have won, and have left a trail of casualties behind us. Because--Hey! Those other people are dumbasses!
