7. The Human Volcano
Anger triggers the release of aging and suppressed truths
like cork exploded from champagne, foaming at the mouth,
a poor birth of elixir.
A man who had bottled up these truths inside himself for
38 years of married life finally discharged them at his wife
in a restaurant one evening. The explosion blew his head
off, woke up two waiters, shattered every glass in the room,
and left his widow with whiplash. The couple was asked to
leave, a further indication that truth is every bit as hard to
take as it is to dish out.
