Sew Lori, I know you just wanted to do some mending, but…
We guys were just thinking of a few likely crowded holiday areas for places to keen-up our senses.
"damsel in distress?" That must have been me tripping over my own thoughts out loud. Ok, so I read some good fairy books (bad choice of words, Al) when I was a kid.
“Just because a woman wears . . . a potentially explosive situation!
It was almost a given that there was going to be at least one fight per night, not speaking of myself here, in the two favorite places I patronized when I was pre-21; some, I knew, were over women. It’s been a long time, but I don’t remember any fights which were caused by women wearing sexy things. Rather attitudes, territories, egos, manipulations, refusing to be ‘cut-out’ while dancing, the girl came from the others’ town (territories again), etc. were primary reasons. When I was over 21 in night clubs it seemed that loose lips under a few beers was the primary reason for fighting over women.
Irregardless of who started what or why, the KEY to avoiding a big mess, if possible, is to recognize the INTERVIEW as early as possible and talk it down from there unless you, yourself, are itching for a fight too.
