As you hit the 40s you tend to be more scatterbrained, you forget things. So, I was angry with my husband the other day, very angry. I stopped talking. The next day I was sulking, by the third day he must have been bored so he asked me why was I angry in the first place?
I looked at him irritably ready to fight and that is when I realized I had forgotten the cause of my fury! I tried to remember but couldn’t!
I turned the other way so he could not see my perplexity.
Why could I not remember what I was angry about? I knew it was something important but what exactly? I didn’t even have a vague recollection. It must have been grave I believe, so I just held on to that idea and stayed angry.
I didn’t have a choice now did I ? After all there are rules. And principles matter.
