Do you have a bad temper? How often do you lose your temper?
Personally, I don’t think my temper is bad. I’ve only really lost it about ten times. It could be less but there could be some events that I’ve blocked from memory.
I’m usually even-tempered. However, there have been occasions that I sound like a banshee. I start screaming to the point that I don’t recognize my voice. At this point, I hope the words coming out of my mouth make sense. If I didn’t know better, I would say that my hair has expanded along with my anger.
Once I know that I was provoked by another bar patron. He was pretending to be a pterodactyl and kicking in the air. I’m not sure if pterodactyls really kick but this one came within a few inches of kicking my face. Twice. After the second kick, I came unglued. My inner voice was trying desperately to tell me that jail food is awful. I walked away. We are probably both thankful that he didn’t break my nose.
I can laugh about it now . . . a little bit.
