I just had a revelation!
I know you have heard this story before but....
Ok, when I was 3 or 4, a friend of the family was keeping me and my 2 sisters, while our parents were.....heck, I have no idea where they were..but it was Christmas time.
Anyway, the lady gave my sisters each a creepy doll clown with a styrofoam ball head and a brick for a body. She gave me a beautiful butterfly necklace.
I, always the genius, was furious that I did not receive the creepy clown. The sight of a pretty girl necklace lit the fire of anger in me (still have issues with this fire).
The anger started like a hot hole in my chest, spread out to the ends of my limbs and the heat raged in my face. Without warning, or logic, I ran up her stairs and jumped off the ledge into her huge family room Christmas tree. This moment has forever been a historic Margaret Alice Anger story. I have never been able to get my family (or myself) to understand WHY I chose to jump into the Christmas tree, until I saw this today, on Facebook.
I have always needed to be #1, whether it makes sense or not.....it definitely makes anger fire!
