This is why I am going to miss Laura as my mentor.
And she's right. I should not descend to the level of personal attack, whatever the provocation. I should hold my head high and just know that sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.
And this particular incident is not "hurting" and I feel no need to justify myself or my actions.
I have had an itch for a very long time now and today, it needed scratching.
