An Elephant in the Room

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........)

Dare not say anything I might put my foot in it!

Hi Lindsay. Yep! Although this time - it's nothing to do with family. What do they say...engage brain before activating mouth? I need some more of those lessons for sure!

I can't help but blaspheme in front of nuns. Don't know why. Heretic in a past life perhaps? VLiF

Yes...know the feeling went to convent school. Say no more!
