Non-newtonian fluid?

Sitting on the porch, smoking and writing while Chad is out with a friend. Just had an amusing mental image, while thinking about the ways in which I'm cooperative until pushed.

Obviously, I'm a non-newtonian fluid. Cornstarch and water, that fabulous old science class demo. Fluid, except under pressure. That fits. ;P

I'll do almost anything but what you try to make me. I'll give almost anything except what you try to take from me.

It's about locus of control. It's why I'm becoming more and more certain that "dominant" is an important part of the ever-growing list of tags and annotated labels that help describe me.

I think most of the family would qualify as such. All of us are known for doubling down the more you press us to knuckle under. You can thank Dad for part of that trait, he's been doing that to his parishes for 40 years now. Give give give and give more... until you try to control him.

*chuckle* Very true. I hadn't thought about it, but Dad is very much that way.
