    I'd Be Rich!!

    If only I got a dime for all of the times I spoke before I thought, I'd be rich by now.  I'm a lot better than I used to be, due to previous experiences.  Thank God, I've learned from those mistakes!

    Only for a quick second.  I think that honestly, even when I say the wrong thing, I know better... but I say it anyway.

    It Always Happens to Me

    Some people live by the 5 second rule.... not me, I always think.... "was it I who said that? And what did I say?"   it doesn't make life easier if you forget to think before you say something.
