engage brain, then speak

Yeah, I could do with listening to my own advice.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge that I say stupid things ALL THE TIME. Mortifying things. Things that instantly make me wish I was dead because then the horror would stop. Things that I, who will willingly embarrass myself here will not be telling because you will jugde me (yesyouwill).

In my defense: I DIDN'T MEAN IT.

BUT. I have never told someone else that their (perfectly well-behaved) children are trouble. So at least I have that to be proud of.


  1. I came home and told Aidan about comparing you and Nye to Russian figure skaters and we had a good laugh... Which is to say that I have often found that the worst things that come out of my mouth often make the best stories, after I recover from the mortification.

  2. I am also so very guilty of this. I think it's going to make me prematurely grey/gray (I never know!). I'm a constant put-my-foot-in-it-er. I should be ashamed (most the time I am)... but sometimes... just sometimes... I like the risk and it makes me laugh... surely you must admit this??! :~}

  3. i JUST did this. seriously. usually i am careful about hurting people's feelings and what not...but this weekend...gah. i am mortified. i can't hardly sleep at what happened. ended up with isaiah getting physically attacked by a stranger. literally. what the hell are we capable of sometimes.

    i hope you recover. (you will).

  4. Some days, I feel I do this with pretty much every blog post/tweet. Eh.

  5. @ lizzie, I'm so sorry. That sucks and I'm pretty certain that nothing that you could say would merit that. Hugs to you.


play nice.
