Today I was in a lively, talkative group, ideas coming from every direction. Someone wanted to cut in front of some of us. They did a dramatic ‘talk to the hand gesture’.
Here’s where my programming came to the fore. And all within a split second. As the ‘T.T.T.H’ swept within inches of my eye the aikido part of me said,
“Yokoman-uchi head strike: response; sankyo grab and wristlock immobilisation.
The sunday school part of me stopped that with a, ” turn the other cheek”.
Then Core Program 1 booted-up.
“Go and make a nice cup of tea”.
