Even if I was inclined to fight like that (and I'm not--never had a fight with Kevin yet), I couldn't do it in such a public way. It's nothing virtuous. It's pride. I just couldn't expose myself like that.
I don't understand people who behave like that. Yellie Screamie & Fishwife must have moved out, because I haven't heard them in at least a year. However, when they were here, they seemed to have a knock-down, drag-out screaming match it seemed like every other night. First of all, living in a place like this you have to know that other people are going to hear you; and secondly, if your relationship is in that state, clearly you both need to do some thinking, some rational TALKING, and get some help. Or something. It went on for months & months.
