You did many of us a favor by admitting your “messy” behavior. I’ve got one for you: twenty-two years later, I’m still feeling guilty about the time I slapped my eleven-year-old daughter across the face for talking back to me when I said, “I told you that you wouldn’t be hungry for dinner after eating an egg salad sandwich.” And her reply which got me so upset was “It wasn’t egg salad. It was tuna.”
