Have you ever managed to paint yourself into the proverbial corner because of your words? What did you do while waiting for them “to dry”?
I often have a problem of my mouth saying things that get me into trouble… especially when I overreact to certain things, and fly off the handle… on to then find out the real story, and I’m left with egg on my face, and then forced to apologise, which I usually find quite hard to do..
Time to confess: tell us about a time when you used a word whose meaning you didn’t actually know (or were very wrong about, in retrospect).
I used to do this all the time in high-school… I’d try and sound really smart by using a strange word in a sentence, and whilst it sounded impressive, when I actually looked it up, it was usually used in the completely wrong context. I don’t even remember what word it was.
