Converting Arguments into Dialogue

"What do you really think?" I answered the question even though it felt like a trap. A few minutes later I found myself in an unexpected argument. Ever happen to you? A lot of us are on edge in this politically charged environment, and it is admirable when people fight for what they believe in.

We are all hypocrites.
