I have read all the blogs that I follow (at the last count I now follow 29 blogs) and still can’t come up with anything to say. I mentioned that fact to my wife and she being a person of great wisdom, told me that if I had nothing to say, then keep your mouth shut. Wow, I would have never thought of that!! That is why I get myself into lots of trouble.
You know what I mean. If not, let me give you some examples. When I was a young boy, I can only remember one time when my Dad spanked me. I don’t remember what I did, but I remember when he slapped my behind I went and opened my big mouth and said, “That didn’t hurt”. Dang, I really should have kept my mouth shut!!
Has your wife ever asked you, “Does this dress make me look fat?”. Now please don’t open your mouth and say that even without the dress she looks fat. . . that, my friend, would be very, very bad. It is a lot safer just to say “no”. That way she is pleased and you didn’t lie. You see, it usually isn’t the dress that makes someone look fat. So you really didn’t lie. Now, I am very lucky to have a beautiful and thin wife who has no bad features at all, and she reads my blog. . .
My big ole mouth has gotten me into lots of trouble over the years. You would think that I would learn, but I just love to come up with quick (and hopefully) funny remarks. They are not always perceived as funny.
How about you, has your mouth ever got you into trouble? Bet it has. No one is immune from a case of “foot in the mouth”. Now, let me hear about some of your “wish I had kept my mouth shut” times. I’m waiting. . . .
