Good story. I, too, was in a similar situation. It seemed like there was a fight every morning where I hung out before school, and I was chosen to fight someone who was supposedly a friend. So we fought and I'd call it a draw. Maybe that's all I needed to do to never get into a fight again!

My life in the context of 20th-century history and pop culture — infused with a dose of fun (where appropriate!) More to come when I get my sea legs on here.
