    Burps Of Social Retardation

    When I enter a social situation where I am forced to speak, there will almost always be problems. Such a social situation might be one where I reaaaally don't want to attend but I have to, for myself. I'm talking job interviews, college advisor one-on-ones, discussing an...

    It's Better This Way.

    It seems at times that i really don't think at all, judging by some of the things that fly from my mouth. I'm a loud  quick witted girl that says everything on her mind, without thinking about the effects it has on other people. I've been called tactless before, ...

    Foot-in-mouth Disease

    I try to watch my words. When I'm angry, my quick wits could get away from me...ending with me tearing strips out of an innocent bystander.So yeah.  I try my best to hold my tongue in check.  And sometimes I fail.  Badly.

    Poison Tongue

    Now that I'm old and boring (okay maybe not SO old but VERY boring)  it's not really a problem anymore. I don't see enough people to really get all twisted over and the hubby and i get each other enough that when upon occasion we say things we didn't mean, it passes quickly...

    Often

    My words take shortcuts, they dislike the sense of having to travel from the gut or the heart to the mind, and then come a distance back down again to the mouth, where they can escape.  They feel they do not want to be under scrutiny, and they feel they must escape...

    My Worst Problem...

    This has got to be my worst problem. I really hate when I end up cursing to myself, and kids happen to be around. Maybe I'm used to there not being any kids around or something, and I really wish I never got into the habit of cursing. I try to stop myself sometimes, but when I...

    I Am So Guilty of This

    I have an acquaintance who has six children, five of them under the age of five. To me she is bright and bubbly, friendly and a really 'together' person. I was visiting recently when she let it slip that she was taking Prozac. Without thinking, I opened my mouth and blurted...

    I Don't Think Before I Talk

    How To Think Before I Open My Mouth? :(

       This definitely is not the first time I've done it. I have done it countless times to my boyfriend, the love of my life. It always seems to be on my happiest days.  Today, I was having an awesome day. My boyfriend and I did lots of talking and what not. I...

    I Try...Really, I Do

    But at times that censor connecting my brain and my mouth malfunctions and I end up saying something that a) I don't express properly, or b) is better left unsaid. Most of the time, its a sarcastic comment or witticism that I probably should keep to myself. Other times, its an...

    It Gets Me In Trouble

    I really don't think sometimes, especially if I am nervous. I then get worried after I have said something stupid because I am worried the person I was talking to got really offended or just found it to be very bizarre, and then I get even more nervous around that person, and I'm...

    Table For One

    One day I’ll learn to think before I speak. You won’t guess how many times I have said that to myself over the years, but yet I still find myself in embarrassing situations on a far too regular basis. I am sure that no doubt it may even get me into some serious trouble. Let...

    Defective Internal Monologue

    Defective Internal Monologue. That's what I call it. And I usually warn people upfront about it. My thoughts don't often seem to successfully make the polishing journey between thought and verbalization. And so what? At least no one has to wonder what I mean, right? While...

    I use to have the habit of just blurting out something before even having a thought.  I still occasionally do it but not very often. Sometimes it would be alright for me to do this. Then it could be funny at times. Also it could be bad and would start a lot of fighting. So now I...
