Most women are afraid of being ugly. I'm convinced that the small number who aren't afraid are either comedians or fighters.
I got a bruised nose and eye last week. It wasn't even that bad, but I came across a few strangers giving me concerned looks. My mom said, "They probably think you're getting beat up by your husband."
They can assume anything. It doesn't really matter. I'm learning how to fight which is totally awesome.
A little ice, and few days off from sparring and everything is back to normal.
