I tore into his office madder than hell. He was sitting behind his desk. This time I was really going to tell him. He looked up and said, "What in hell do you want?" I just stood there and couldn't say anything. Then I turned around, but instead of walking away, I crawled away on my hands and feet with my ass up in the air.

I was standing in a bull ring with a man I could not identify, someone uninitiated to bull fighting. The matador had gotten hurt. He was on the ground, and the bull was goring him. Blood was everywhere. The picadors with their capes were trying to draw the bull away from the matador.
