Just in case you do not know me well enough… I have a 2 year old grandson who I just adore. He is awesome! He loves playing pillow fight. Of course being so much bigger than me, it’s not even a contest. I can trounce him pretty good… and I do… just because it’s fun.
We were playing this game on the deck yesterday and the little tike is learning quickly. After being mauled by my dangerous pillow, he got off the floor… distracted me by making a big show out of leaving and then sneaking back quietly just to whack me on the back of the head with his pillow. He did achieve his goal… got me off balance and tipped me over. He of course then proceeded to jump on top of me with all the power he could muster. No fear, no holding back, no compassion.
Moral of the story? If you need to fight out of your weight class, never underestimate the power of surprise, violence of action, persistence, ferocity and sneakiness. They are your best tools, heck they are most likely your only tools.
