First Fight

Hey all! Today's the First Fight / First Kiss blogfest hosted by Dani Bertrand over at Entertaining Interests. Click on the pic to go to get to her blog and read the other entries. But wait! First check mine out. ;)


Okay, so we're supposed to post a snippet of one of our stories first fight today and first kiss on Thursday, but you know I always like to put my own spin on these, so instead of making you read some of my work, I thought I'd share with you my first fight. You know, the real deals.

Now, I fought all the time with my two younger brothers, so throwing fists and kicks was never new to me. But when I was in seventh grade, we had to be bussed to inner city schools as part of an integration project ... and that's exactly where my school was: the projects. My first real fight happened in math class one day after the teacher had stepped out. And of course, it was with probably the toughest little boy in the hood. lol (I don't know how I get myself into these things.)

Anyway, he sat in front of me in class and was turning around and kept getting in my face ( I don't remember exactly why) so what does the brilliant PK do?? I b*@#ch-slapped him right in his face. Well, that did it. From there we stood up and threw kicks and punches. He pretty much whipped my arse. I finally got away from him and had a black eye and bruised cheek. At some point the teacher did come back and sent us both to the principal.

We both got suspended. Uh-huh. Nice.

Don't know what ever happened to him. But it sure makes for a funny memory.

There you have my first fight story. How about you? Have any to share? Don't forget to check out the others .... and come back on Thursday for my first kiss. Woo woo!;)

I have 3 brothers and, as a child, they really were good fighting practice! Although, I'm wimpier than you, and always tended to run from fights!

Suzi said...

You are a tough gal. Way to not back down.

Kyra Lennon said...

Sounds like that kid needed to be bitch-slapped!

SA Larsenッ said...

Haha...Love this! You sound like my daughter. Poor thing lives with me, her father, and three brothers. She and I feel outnumbered so often. lol

Eliza Tilton said...

That's hilarious. My first-almost fight was in fifth grade with a boy on my bus. He used to bark at me all the time. I went to his busstop in the morning to fight him, it was planned but then his mom came out and yelled at me...I wasn't allowed at that stop anymore.

You should start a new service: Go a few rounds with PK! lol If you'd only had cardio kickboxing then, you might've won. :)

Seeing a lot of girls vs boy first fights. I don't recall the ladies in my school being quite so fiery, which is a shame because I knew plenty of guys that needed a good tail-tucking from a girl.

M.J. Fifield said...

I don't think I've ever been in a fight. Verbal, yes, but not a physical fight.

Fun story for a fun blogfest.

Mina Burrows said...

My brothers were notoriously picking one me as a kid. They used to cover (okay smother) me with a blanket and punch jabs at me. Yeah, it sucked being the younger sister. :(

Jackie said...

I grew up with three brothers- we've had our share of fights with each other. LOL

I would've b-slapped that dude, too!

Thanks for participating in our blogfest!

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Hah - you rock! Love it!

Cassie Mae said...

You should've kissed him. He was just begging you to! ;)

Carrie-Anne said...

Good for you for defending yourself! I went to a very tough junior high (though it wasn't exactly in the projects), and there were lots of fights like that. I still remember how my friend Angel got ganged up on by a bunch of tough kids on the way back from lunch one day, and she was suspended because she fought back. I still think one of the principal bullies I had in 7th grade, Bernard (who also liked to bully the abovementioned Angel), is probably in jail now, or headed there, for something like domestic violence, robbery, or assault. This was the same little punk who ripped the flag in our homeroom down, kicked it around the room, and threw it out the window one afternoon.

Bitch-slapping is a talent of mine. lol Yours tops the cake tho! Good for you PK.

I love the real deals! My mom and dad has told me stories when the kids when bussed to their school. My parents said that the kids didn't have a probelm with it, the parents did MOSTLY. But they had their fair share of fights.

Times have changed. Now kids fight over boyfriends and clothes.

Thanks for sharing in the blogfest!

Norma Beishir said...

I've been in so many fights, I can't remember which one came first....

Andrea Teagan said...

You kick ass!! Great story, PK!

Also I saw the cover for stormdancer on your blog, wow that cover looks amazing.

Heather Murphy said...

YEAH! Good for you :)

Libby said...

WOW!!! Glad you walked away with a few bruises. Sounds brutal.

James Anderson said...

That will teach him for invading someone's personal space. I imagined some obnoxious kid getting bitch slapped. A shame about the consequent beating. But at least you got in the first punch.

Michael Pierce said...

I applaud you for smacking him, but it sucks you got suspended, too. Or maybe time off from school was a good thing at the time... Very entertaining story! :)

Michael Di Gesu said...

Boy you where one tough little girl. I can see you doing it too.

Are you girls as tough? Lol.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Ha ha, what a great story. It sounds like your judgement was kind of like mine when I was young. My first week in high school, this really scary looking senior cheerleader bumped against me kind of hard when she walked past me. She was being oblivious, but I don't think it was intentional. I shoved her back and almost knocked her down. I thought she was going to fight me for sure, but she didn't. I think she was so shocked she didn't even know what to do.

Jeremy Bates said...

I have a question, PK: Did you slap the taste out of his mouth before he put the ass-whippin' on you? lol

Crystal Collier said...

Way to go. Beaten or not, you asserted yourself and probably ended up with less guff because of it. Integration... That was a great idea. *rolls eyes* =)

Gina Gao said...

This is a great story! I really enjoy reading through your blog.

Sounds like he definitely deserved it! I bet he thought twice after that.

Christine Rains said...

I agree that he deserved it! Good for you!

DL Hammons said...

You little spitfire!! :)

Tanya Reimer said...

I was giggling the entire time, imagining you in that little mess. Well told. You made a very bad situation sound funny. Memories are like that eh?

Aldrea Alien said...

Whoa, not sure if I'd go that far. But then, I did try to straggle the first person who tried to pick on me. Didn't succeed because the teacher came back.
Can't recall why I did it. Think she made some crack about my mother. Didn’t get suspended though.

The second person ... well, he got a foot in a rather tender part. I don’t do cornered very well. ^_~

Angela Ackerman said...

Damn I wish I'd been there to see the look of shock on his face! LOL, you slapping him probably was the last thing he expected. *fistpump*

I never stood up to bullies until I got into high school. I never had to fight tho...I had a biting wit, and most people learned not to get on the wrong side of it. When my kids ran into trouble I told them to stand up for them, not follow my path. If you don't stand up to bullies, they will keep at you. I had a terrible childhood because I didn't learn that lesson quick enough.

I never fist fought anyone . . . but one time in tenth grade my boyfriend and I had a huge screaming fight in class and looking back, I'm still embarrassed!

cleemckenzie said...

Way to go, PK! I'll be he never forgot that first punch!

William Kendall said...

My height was usually enough to make people think twice about bothering me, but in grade seven, there was this guy who'd been teasing and harassing me all year long, maybe fifty pounds bigger than me, and finally, the end of the year, I had enough. I decked him, knocked him out... and the principal saw the whole thing. The other guy got into trouble, oddly enough. I didn't. He must have had a reputation.

Donna Yates said...

Excellent writing. I was drawn right in, although somehow I can't see you fighting.

Hope Roberson said...

Woohoo! Way to go! I had a sort of fight in middle school. The boy I liked decided to slap me for some reason (he still doesn't know why he did it), I was standing there silent and he slapped me. So I punched him as hard as I could in the face. Then I turned around and bawled my eyes out. It was devastating :( I guess that was my one and only fight and I haven't thought about that for a long time! Thanks for sharing ;)
