ITLR- FightingPosted: December 11, 2012 | |
i got into a fight last night.
let’s be clear; i HATE fighting. it’s def a last resort to me. but down here, fighting is a reality for men.
i was leaving a store and a guy (about 5’10-6″) walked in my path. i moved to the side to let him by and he drove his shoulder into mine. we were in the parking lot. i stopped, turned and said, “what the fuck dude?” he turned looked at me and said, “what are you gonna do boy?”
game the fuck on.
look, this guy WANTED a confrontation, but thought he was dealing with a “soft target”. look, i get it, i’m short, most guys don’t see me as a threat, so they’ll fuck with me. i stared at him for a few seconds and said, “trust me, you DO NOT want to do this.” to which he replied that he didn’t need to do anything.
i took off my glasses and chain, and pulled off my shirt. and told him, “your move asshole.”
he rushed me (predictably), which i was expecting and he swung on me. he got a glancing blow of the left side on my face. my jaw hurt and my nose was cut from his wedding ring. by this point his wife and kid showed up and he didn’t back down. now look; i fight tactically. this guy was a straight brawler. with my stature i can’t go toe-to-toe with a dude that has 80 pounds on me. as we circled each other, i was waiting for him to rush me. i needed to get close and drop him. he finally came at me, grabbed my shoulders and before he could move on me, i smashed my forehead into his nose.
he let go, and his wife rushed to his side. i told the wife i NEVER wanted to fight. and i apologized for the incident.
look, i’m not celebrating this, but it happened. and HATE that i had to react. i posted this as an example of a man’s world, and sometimes that includes going into the physical realm. most men DO NOT fight. i was raised to fight. the second wifey got in front of me, i stopped. i honestly left the red and let her tend to her husband.
i apologized to her and told her i NEVER wanted it to come to this. she waved me on and said her husband can be a bit to brash. i told her how to take care of his nose and i left.
my jaw hurts, my nose if cut, and my right shoulder (where he rushed me) is sore.
i hate fighting. but i know it’s a needed skill for a man. i like how girls wince at men fighting, but then again respect the fact we do it.
i really hope the guy recovers quickly and well.
