Heck, they are only nerf balls. He was a boy once. I imagined he tried throwing just about every object he could lift at one time or another. So what's a nerf ball compared to that?

(I love the image, btw.)

Defensive and full of excuses for anything he thought might offend me even when it didn't in any way offend me. I'm glad that's worn off. It's a bit tiring.

Well, that's to be expected, I imagine. His avoiding p*ssing you off, plus, maybe he was deeply embarrassed and remorseful. But he reset, yes? And did not hold it against you that you saw and acted upon his deficiency.

I would imagine it would be tiring. Like, okay already, you won't flippin' break me if you use your regular voice or something.

> I *think* I sound more confrontational in my recaps on Babble than I am in real life. Not so much in content but in style. My style with him, which I sometimes perceive as ridiculous and embarrassing, is that of well loved daughter to well loved parent. I think he's gotten used to it now, and so
he likely doesn't consider it ridiculous.

> I hope.

Probably not. He might not even see it that way, unless this is something else you two have discusssed frankly. Frankness seems to figure large in your sessions if I am reading your posts correctly.
