Open Mouth; Insert Foot

Do you ever have that feeling seconds after you part a conversation? Why is it that I continually think back upon a conversation and want to duck into a hole? I cannot believe I say certain things. Really. I’m not sure what I’m thinking at times. Did that really come out of my mouth? Did I actually say that to that person? That’s what I love about writing. You can reread and reread and reread before you send it. Whether it’s the old-fashioned letter writing, e-mail or a blog. We can reread what we write before we allow others to "hear". I need to stick more to writing and do a little less talking.

“Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.” – Proverbs 17:28
