Its not really who I think it is. The neighbor, girlfriend,or estranged acquaintance, but a 3 headed demon of bitterness, envy and pride. My opponent is in the ring with boxing gloves on taunting me while I try to shield the children's eyes from its hideous form. I try buckling Cora in the car seat and her screaming protests begin to compete with the hissing from the ring. Ender's whining and complaining gets caught among the lying and the jeering coming from the spiritual beast. I plow forward to nap time.
Its at nap time that the house quiets and the fight can get serious. You open your Bible, bow your head and glove up.
But he also cried with a father's proud and sentimental love when he found a top female wrestler that reminded him of Cora. I'll have to post an interview of her sometime.
