My mom told me to think first and then talk. Most of the time, I follow her advise. Sometimes – but not as often as a couple of years ago – I don’t. At those moments, I just blurt out anything that comes to mind. Wrong. I know. I can really hurt people with my tactless comments. Also, I have shocked others with intimate details about me or my life. But the worst of all: I will say something really stupid… And realise that immediately after it left my mouth.
I turn pink
I start sweating
I wish for the ground to open underneath me
