Flip Side

Today I heard someone say that anger is the flip side of fear.

The dark side if the moon just seems more interesting.

Apparently, I’m terrified by my neighbor’s dachsund. Its incessant barking has my fear (of jail) factor maxed out.

My current Amazon wishlist includes, but is not limited to: a grappling hook, a Catwoman costume with a toolbelt, a dog whistle, MacGyver’s field guide to demolition with baling wire, duct tape, & WD-40, and a copy of Caddyshack (an exposition of futility when dealing with bad neighbors).

Lucky for us all that my daughter is smarter than me. I have 2 words for her strategy:

Retaliatory. Violin.
