I am going to fucking kill you.
I had this repeatedly screamed at me once. It was the most bizarre and intense interaction I have ever shared with anybody. Now I can laugh at how the situation came about – it involved a pair of hair clippers on a very hot day – but I won’t get into that. I’ve thought about this interaction many times, if you can even call it an ‘interaction’ when one person is just screaming at the other. Although the words were not a real threat, but a very unfortunate figure of speech, it left a huge impression on me. In fact, these words changed my life.
