Her hypocrisy triggered my stubbornness

Why I let myself get dragged into a heated argument with my Mom when I was already tired is not beyond me. It wasn't the sort of argument where either of us was actually upset; it was just the adrenaline-raising exhausting sort: voices raising to be heard over the other, incredulity over the other's unwillingness to give in over something so stupid.

It went on too long and too far precisely because I was wiped out to begin with. I'm calmer now but can still feel a vestige of excitability crackling underneath, sapping my strength.
