The Arena

In this corner, the ladies hair-pulling barred!

AT one of the first AA meetings that I attended with my husband I was touched by the way a lady member to whom we were introduced suddenly left her chair beside me and went to sit on the other side of my husband. I thought that she wanted to give him moral support, since he was a newcomer to the group. But since then she has avoided me as carefully as if I had leprosy, and I am forced to conclude that she simply doesn't want to have anything to do with a mere wife.
