Anger Management (or, "People Are Weird")
"You never get angry," a friend teased. "I want to see you blow up. Yell."
"I don't get angry," I said. "Or if I do, you'll never know it."
What's there to get angry about? I have a job, great family, friends. Even during the worst of times--running into an ex-boyfriend and his date? paying $10 to see a movie then falling asleep during the middle? coworkers not asking if I want anything for lunch before they order out?--I may get annoyed or embarrassed. But never angry.
"I'll keep working on it," the friend said.
"You do that."
