Have you ever been in a fight? How did you get on? Did you get to use the expression "you shoulda seen the other guy/girl?" in the aftermath at any point. I hit this kid called Mark S_____ when we were 11, in the playground. I mean, I hit him in the face. Not like "the playground" is some boxing euphemism for the solar plexus or something. His nose made a sort of noise like Pop! and blood came out. It was terrifying. I sort of think it was more terrifying for me than it was for him. That's probably easy for me to say; I wasn't the one being hit in the face. He cried and ran off. But the sense of... consequence, I guess, was really overwhelming. As you can probably tell, I'm clearly not cut out for it.
