Tricky one there at our "looking disagreement in the face" evening.
I was trying to mediate between Stacey and Milton. A real problem between the two of them. She thinks he's a pig-headed, thick-skinned numbskull. While he thinks she's over-sensitive, fussy and needy.
Well, I tried to help build a bridge. Create some common ground. I told them that I thought, on balance, they were both right.
They found some common ground, at any rate. They both hate me now. I feel that, in a very real sense, we've had a real leap forward.
