I was in a lot of fights when I was off meds and homeless and really loosing lucid. I’m not really a puncher, I’m a gangly swimmer, not very coordinated on land. So I shove and kick when I’m not on meds. I used to get beat up a lot when I was homeless. I was so drunk and out of my head, I don’t know if I really knew what was going on.
My one true fight that I completely started while ON meds was more then stupid. (they all are) I was 18, my sis was 7. There was a guy in a mascot uniform (a big banana) swinging a sign around for some smoothie health food store and I was having a very bad and angry day. I was getting clean and sober for the first time ever, I was most likely in a bit of withdrawal, I was on meds, but my head wasn’t together yet… and the banana was scaring my kid sister while trying to get her to take some coupon for the store. It was following us and skipping and trying to engage the little kids on the street.
I was getting paranoid and really freaked out by this banana mascot… and as soon as the Banana guy (who probably meant well) shook my kid sisters hand and she tried to pull away, that was it… fight time.
Yes, if your getting a visual of me trying to fight and shove a 6 foot banana, that’s just about right. The Banana kicked my butt, he hit me with his sign. The whole thing was stupid and embarrassing. My sister however, picked up all the coupons and got us half price smoothies for over a month.
