Why is it? That when there's "an elephant in the room"....instead of avoiding the subject I go and merrily blurt it out or mention something very similar to it? (Diplomacy is not a strong point in our family as you may have already guessed.)
Why, oh, why is it always me?...putting my foot into my very big mouth!
(And I always stress about what I have said, for minutes, hours, days, months afterwards........)
