Its Like Good Advice That You Just Can't Take...

It gets me to no end, to the nth degree when  I think of something great,  just perfect to say xcept that its past due... too late. A day late and a dollar short.   something that could have been the apt thing to say + could have changed the fate of things or set an entire new course...      I want to not do this .

Yeah, it's not all it's cracked up to be. I have a smart mouth that I inherited from my mother, and while I don't always intend to offend but instead want to be witty, sometimes my snappy comebacks are taken in offense and I've offended sensitive people who are avoiding me now. I don't like that. I mean, I can't even get close enough to them to say I'm sorry. So - snappy comebacks can be perceived like the strike of a diamond back rattle snake, too.

Solution: Refrain from saying the first thing that enters your head. Bite your tongue if necessary while you listen. Silence is often perceived as wisdom. Wisdom is preferred over cleverness. Abraham Lincoln said, "People believe I am an idiot until I open my mouth and remove all doubt."
