There are always those arguments, that, once you’re in them, you tend to either back down or double down.  It all depends on whether you’re getting hot about it or cold about it.

People hot into an argument will double down even when there’s that little voice in their heads telling them it’s gonna cost ’em dear if they can’t shut up and think for a minute.

People cold on an argument are already thinking about tomorrow and how they’re gonna make sure this difference of opinion becomes something somebody’s gonna wish they hadn’t got hot over.

People who tend to waffle and waver between the hot and cold go lukewarm and… let’s face it, they don’t win or lose.  They just set up to have another argument later on.
