I suppose that I was just - what's a good word? - flabbergasted by the opinion expressed to me tonight.
Not defensive, though it might have come to that before too long. Certainly not angry.
I cannot think of any time in my life when I've been confronted with a more inaccurate series of statements.
Luckily, HatGirl came in and distracted me before I made a complete ass out of myself.
