Out for supper to celebrate Mama Warmth's birthday. Conversation turned to our temperaments. How we react, who we inherit our repsonses from. A great conversation, especially as we're family but haven't known each other for years and years so are still getting to know each other. Me? I cry. Somehow others often find crying harder than a temper. I used to think that I didn't get angry. But then I realised that crying is my way of showing it. And always how does the other person respond? Hence why this quotation was recorded.
'Shit, he thinks. She's working herself up. Now she'll cry. She'll cry and I'll sit here like a lump, and once women start crying there's no way to make them stop.' Margaret Atwood The Blind Assassin
