Writer's Block: Fight or flight

Have you ever struck someone in a fit of anger or self-defense? If so, did you live to regret it?

Yes! I love telling this story! At Bumbershoot one year (I think I was 15 or 16?) I was waiting to get out of one of the indoor venues and it was super crowded with everyone trying to get out. Some old dude was pushing me from behind and I asked him to stop. He asked what a "little girl" was going to do about it and I just turned around and ignored him. Then he grabbed my ass so I turned around and punched him in his nose hard enough to make it bleed. Some guys standing nearby asked if I needed help with the dude and I said I didn't think so ;) He did leave me alone after that. I don't regret it at all and I hope that guy learned a lesson that day.
