Do you ever hear something said that has an immediate crushing effect, so much so that your brain freezes and you are unable to think of a comeback - for days!! The other day it happened to me. My cousin said, "I'm sick of hearing about your slutty stories." I had never spoken about them. I didn't even know he had heard of them (I found out there had been chatter amongst the older generation). And I was not speaking about them at the time of the comment - his mother was. So why direct the comment/anger/antagonism at me? Was it a jealousy thing? Did he want to be able to write freely but felt unable to express himself? I wish I had have been able to converse about it, rather than stand in mute shock and let them all walk away.
