Why I Can’t Fight

I was a large child, and most of the fistfights that would have enabled my later fighting skills 1) ended really quickly, 2) about 80 percent of the time yielded a later-that-day sequel beat-down by some older sibling of my opponent, because I was too big to be fighting kids my own age.

So lack of skill development + the negative reinforcement of intermittent ass-beatings by terrifyingly large teenagers = I can’t fight.

Plus: wimp.
