For me, I really want lots of comments if I post about my races or my world; otherwise, I love them but never feel slighted if I don't get them (okay, maybe if you didn't tell me happy birthday I might have felt a little slighted). BUT -- I always want everyone to participate in my polls.

--------

Yesterday, Matthew (this highschooler cashier) was working at the next register over, and he told me his IPH (items scanned per hour) and wanted me to tell him mine, but I wouldn't. So he came over to my register as I was finishing with a customer, and was about to reach for the action code keys to get it anyway -- and I grabbed his hand and said, "Oh no you don't, buddy." He stepped back, and I gave my customers their receipt, smiled and wished them good day, then turned back to him. He told me I have 'man hands'; I asked what he meant by that and he said that I have a very strong grip. Without thinking, I said, "Yeah, well I'm able to stop people from doing things I don't want them to." He said, "really? You've needed to stop people?" or something like that -- I didn't quite catch it because he was walking back to his register. He was probably trying to be a smartass (like usual).

Anyway, that little incident made me realize that I am strong.
I am no longer a helpless child, and I don't need to feel like one.
I am able to defend myself.
I am able to say no.

I feel my strength awakening in my spirit; my shimmering white cobra is rearing her unutterably beautiful, dangerous head. It feels so good, so freeing.
feelings: powerful
