Roles reversed

I might have written about this earlier, but today, I was reminded of my favorite t shirt again.
It has the image of a deer with a rocket launcher running behind a cheetah. My name means deer and I often think I'm like that deer. The one that confuses the cheetah and makes a predator run away from the prey. The hunter becomes the hunted.

Even in life, I've seen that happen with me. People who try to intimidate are often confused when I stop, arm myself and get ready to fight. If the conflict reaches a level they're unaware of how to handle, they just run away and leave me chasing. Sigh.

To everyone out there, remember this- the predators are not as invulnerable and they can and will be hunted down if you arm yourself.
