In writing about fighting

I have noticed something.

When I am speaking, and I say something about my "best" fights, I am usually talking abut fights I enjoyed a lot. These are fights that were intense, where I and my opponent were throwing lots of shots and barely blocking them, which probably went on for awhile, and quite often they are fights which I lost. When I write about fights in this blog and I say "my best fight", it is usually a fight in which I executed a particular technique well. Quite often it didn't last more than one or two blows. Rarely was it intense. My perspective is different when writing about fighting than when talking about fighting, and I find that very interesting.
