3. Post your piece of writing in the comments section of the website to be considered for the ‘Best Of’ section.

    “It could go on like that for hours. Finally, though, I’d leave his room without even taking a sock at him.” – Catcher in the Rye (117)

    I was actually talking about something along these lines the other day. I’m 32-years-old, and I’ve never been in a fight. I’ve never been punched, thrown a punch, been squared up upon, or really even put into a situation where it was a possibility. Once, when I was 16, a former friend of mine decided he wanted to fight me, but all he did was kick me in the shin, and run away, so I don’t count that as anything. I have been hit in the head with a baseball before, so I’ll assume that felt just as bad as a punch might feel. I can’t say that I’m missing out on anything. I’m not generally an angry enough person to long for a fight, and I feel as if I’m good enough with my words to stop a fight from happening. Hopefully that continues.
