Ever get the feeling you're a total idiot? I think it's called an "oh-no-second" - where you realized you've just said COMPLETELY the wrong thing and stuck your foot so far into your mouth that your knee is choking you.

I do it regularly. Daily actually. And usually with the folk I care the most about. Or the ones I want to care about me... :-)

I'm starting to think that I should simply shut up for most of the time. Open my ears, shut my mouth, think for at least an hour before I utter a word in respose to anything, and certainly don't try to be funny!!!

But do you think I'll ever learn? Unlikely. I'll keep on saying the wrong thing for the rest of my life.


(thankfully when all else fails, there is always dark chocolate to make things better.. :-) )
