Sometimes we would say unkind things to each other.

Unkind things can sometimes slip undetected through the filter we have, the one that allows us to ask before speaking, "Is this a good thing to say out loud?"

But more often, unkind things can seduce us into actively choosing to say them out loud. They tell us, "Something good will happen if you say me out loud. You will get what you want."

We both knew what was going on, and I ignored her unkind things and she ignored mine; we had this unspoken accord, and those were good days.
