Last week a woman ran up to my 76 year old aunt, yanked her purse free, and then bolted. How did Aunt Sherry react? With absolute fierceness, after all, nursing her cantankerous husband through cancer will give you an edge over mere mortal assholes. My aunt chased after her attacker, jotted down the license plate, and got that .... (too many cuss words are hitting me at once) criminal arrested. Just the day before, the thief roughed up the person she was robbing.
Back in June, my mom's purse was stolen out of her car a week before going on vacation. Quick thieving bastards. If my mom had gotten the chance she would have pummeled the assholes into the ground. I am not exaggerating.
These two women grew up on a farm with a Great Depression era mother. They've survived and triumphed over many struggles. And when pressed, they'll kick your ass. Would I have chased down that thief? Or busted the balls of the man who smashed my car window and stole my purse (though I do not own a purse)? I'm a mix of impulsive, cerebral, and sensitive. I have no freakin' clue what part of my personality would show up to the party. How about you? Are you a fighter?
