I certainly do strive for something in between, but I just can't help myself sometimes. Today, it nearly boiled over when a cyclist wouldn't get out of my way while I was late for work. I parked the car and did the ten deep breaths, only to have that same cyclist in my way again a few hundred feet down the road. Thank God that cyclist hit a rock and fell or I could have done something regrettable.
