a. An encounter between opposing forces
b. Armed fighting; combat: wounded in battle.
The opposing forces:
It's one of the tree's we had at our reception (our colors were brown and pink) It has significance and whenever I look at it, I think of our wedding day. Plus it's cute!
We don't live in a chick's apartment. It's not manly.
For the last two years we have had this tree in our apartment and I have never heard the end of it. Now that we are moving, Bob insists there is no room for it. Which I think translates to.. finally! a chance to get rid of that tree.
It's going to be a bloody day on the battlefield..
