I went to an event a few weeks ago where I tried a product a woman was selling in a booth.

The product was mixed with another and I was unable to distinguish the one she was selling and asked to try it pure.

She ripped my innocent head off. "What exactly do you want me to do?" she barked.I was not being aggressive. I can be, I can be a real witch, but I wasn't being one then and there.

Nothing, I said, and walked away.

I would have liked to have said "I am interested enough in your product to want to taste it. Why are you speaking to me in this manner?" But I couldn't say any of those things. She frightened and hurt me, and I could not speak or I would have cried.

How many times I have not been able to "defend" myself in situations of this sort I cannot count. It's always the same. I choke.

There are a couple of things I wonder about here: Is this regression? Am I popped back into how I felt as a child when I was unjustly accused?

Or is it something else?

What is interesting is as I was writing, I had another thought about what it could be and that thought is now gone. Hmm.

Thanks.
