Open Wide & Insert Both Feet
If you are a normal person you have had at least one experience in your life in which you said something that you wished that you could take back.
If you are like me you are part mutant and have had this happen more than once. I seem to go through periods of time in which my mouth and my brain stop working together. For that matter I can recall a period of time in which they took separate vacations.
It was great. Everything I said was dumb/offensive and or silly. You name it, I managed to do it.
It was more than just a little embarrassing, it was a lot. But such is life, especially if you like me try not to take it all too seriously.
That doesn’t mean that I enjoy making myself feel foolish, like you, I really don’t. But I try hard not to dwell on it. This is one of those areas in which I constantly strive to do better because the reality is that I sometimes live inside my head and those stupid comments reasonate here. I always envision it like some kind of internal Pong game.
Eventually I forget about it and move on.
One of these days I am going to bathe my feet in chocolate so that when I do get stuck chewing on a size 12 boot I’ll enjoy it a little bit more.
