Maybe you don’t have an Inner Sh**bag. Maybe you’re too nice, too gentle, too forgiving. Part of me wishes that I could say as much. And part of me doesn’t.
I learned Inner Sh**bag behaviours during the course of my
marriage. Sometimes the best way to
deal with my abusive husband was to fight back using his own verbal tools
rather better than he could. Sometimes
I would use my natural flair for language to silence and humiliate him.
