Adrenalin and Anger
Adrenalin, When Angry, Can Be A Good Thing
We are never too sure with men about our anger
Whether it is the testosterone or adrenalin or both
But today, my anger was due to an adrenalin rush
I asked a taxi cab driver in Lima Peru to take me to the beach
To see a soccer match of associates
The beach was a 15 minute walk from where I was
And a five minute ride in a tuk tuk
He wanted to take me along the Pacific Coast beach line in Lima!!!!!!
This was the second time a taxi cab driver
WANTED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ME!!
This time I was not having it!
Angry, Livid, Enraged and Infuriated
I went off on him in the most indignant tirade ever for about 15 minutes
ALL IN PERFECT SPANISH
I shocked the hell out of myself
I was so angry and yet so happy
So thrilled that I was speaking Spanish fluently
I re-gathered myself, thank God!
And directed him to take me back to the starting point
Where there was an ATM
I told him from the start that I only had seven soles
It only would have cost 4 or 5
We never found the soccer match
He accepted what I had!!!
What a wonderful experience with anger!!
