quote of the day

"... the best way to avoid a fight is not to start it." tim cavanaugh

Duh... ya think so?

Those words of wisdom apply to EVERY situation, including law enforcement. If you want to pick a fight, you can usually find one. I know that much just from writing this blog. Hell, be a bar musician for six years and see what you learn about assholes picking fights. It ain't pretty.

My motto today is... "give me three steps toward the door." If you'll do THAT, I'm outta there. I'm gone and YOU WIN!!! I hope I never have another fist-fight in my life, not because I probably would lose, but because there simply ain't no sense in it.

Just don't knock down MY door and come charging into MY house unannounced at night. You'll get a fight then.

And it won't be pretty.


Oh Gawd...

As soon as I saw that guy's name, I thought of Porky's.
So, I checked IMDb and sure enough, that IS the name of the character played by Cyril O'Reilly.
An absolutely gorgeous guy and my second favorite character in those movies, second only to Mickey Jarvis, played by Roger Wilson.

Then, you quote what used to be my favorite band of all time (til the remaining members decided to go "country"-ew) Lynyrd Skynyrd.

And, I'm pretty much on the same page as you when it comes to fighting, unless someone I love is being attacked... Then, all bets are OFF and I'll pick up whatever's handy and start swinging til the attacker is no more, whether it's with words or my handy-dandy axe handle or anything in between.

I've been told recently that I have the ability, when I'm in a state of total pissoff, to make a certain Navy SEAL nervous, yet I've never been in a fist fight in my life.
At least not one of my own.
I have broken up several bar fights involving friends of mine with a well-wielded pool cue or two, though.

And, charge into MY house at ANY time unannounced or unwanted?
Only way you'll be leaving is on a stretcher or in a body bag.
And, God forbid somebody pull that kinda shit when I have PMS.... there wouldn't be enough pieces left to justify a body bag then.

I'm just really glad my list of people I'd become violent in protection of is such a short one.

Let's see... there's you.... and.... Eric.
George, too, if it ever became necessary, but he's soooo low-key nobody ever tries messing with him in the first place.
So yeah... you and Eric. Anybody stupid enough to try hurting either of you two is as good as dead, or will wish they were by the time I get done.

The scary part for me is how much I do and always will enjoy destroying a person who'd be stupid enough to try that.

Despite the apparent logic in the statement, I actually disagree with it.

IMHO the best way to avoid a fight is to let everyone know that if they start a fight, you'll finish it.

Good post, El Bitcho.

Well, this is the second time you've called either me or Rob a bitch, Neutered-Tomcat.

So, who the hell are you talking to?

Either way, I find it highly amusing a person with no blog has the temerity to judge what anybody else writes.
And ironic that one with a "handle" that indicates having balls hasn't got the balls to be direct about this "bitch" bullshit...

But, I will give you credit for naming yourself in the correct species... ( ya pussy).

Charging into my house unannounced & unwelcomed is usually accompanied by the following sountrack: BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click* ratchet, clank, cha-chick!

No shit, Rick. That may be the last sound I ever hear, but I'll damn sure hear it.
