I Want to Kill! Eat Dead Burned Flesh, Bones in My Teeth, Kill! Kill!

Daily Prompt Mad as a Hatter Tell us about a time when you flew into a rage. What is it that made you so incredibly angry?

I don’t anger easily. If I get pushed to that point, that is the end of the relationship with whomever it is who pushed me. Why? Because killing people is frowned upon in our day and age, so I can only kill them subjectively by not knowing them anymore. What makes me angry? (Irritation and frustration are NOT anger, by the way.) Dishonesty is on the top of that list combined with abuse and injustice. If those appear together and are directed at me or someone I care for, watch out. As for telling anyone about a moment when I was driven into a rage? I don’t think so. These are not moments I want to relive or share. Meanwhile, a poem and film that might be enjoyable to older folks, and has the lines I’ve used as the title for this post.

  1. When I read the title I thought I was getting confessons of a female vampire. No I do not like to disclose such secrets on a blog, it is not really a fitting place. I made an exception to listen to the video. I have the original CD from Arlo Guthrie, mainly because of “City of New Orleans” which is also on the record, but I love that song and I very much like Arlo Guthrie.

    • Me too. I love “City of New Orleans” and one cool thing here, is there are train museums and the one in my area has cars from that train. My cousin is going to visit me from Oregon in about a month and I’m taking her on the train with those cars. 🙂 I’ll certainly write about it.

  2. I have different kinds of anger. The hot flash, waving arms, shouting anger, usually in response to stupidity in a service-related field. The long, slow, building rage of betrayal. That can last a lifetime. Annoyance, Irritation, pissed-offedness, which aren’t true anger but some expression of frustration. It has been a very long time since I was irate, and that was the end of a very long friendship. For that kind of anger, I need some serious fuel. You have to go out of your way to make me mad, and it doesn’t often happen. Not any more, what with most of the people who did it gone to a better — or worse — place, depending.

    Your post yesterday reminded me of a book that is great and funny science fiction by Connie Willis. If you haven’t read it, you can get it on Kindle, print, or Audible. It’s either a long novella or a short novel. But I’m 99% sure you’ll like it.
