"I got my first face tattoo... when I was 24. Basically, I got it so that I couldn't get a normal job...."

Boiling Mad? It Might Not Be Anger After All

Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar, as Freud may or may not have said. That is, sometimes anger is just anger. You’re annoyed or aggravated, because you’re genuinely annoyed or aggravated.
