The awesome Chief started a new blog carnival last week. All the things that you really meant to say to someone, instead of being polite or the bigger person or whatever sort of nicey-type-thing, you can now let it rip and tell us what you really meant to say.
Taking a slightly different approach to this this week. Since I have a tendency to open my mouth and say what I’m thinking, I don’t have that many examples of where I bit my tongue and then spill what I really meant on here.
So, I’m going to tell you about a time when I let my mouth work ahead of my brain.
Unfortunately, it happens to me a lot.
I didn’t mean it the way that it came out.
But, here’s what happened:
I was at my older brother and sil’s house.
Sil, whom I love and adore and couldn’t imagine a better wife for my brother than her.
I call their house and ask to speak to her, not my brother.
Sooo, we’re watching The Biggest Loser.
And my sil sighs, “I wish I could be on The Biggest Loser.”
And I open my HUGE mouth and say, “You totally should apply! You’d be awesome!”
Now, what I should have said was: “No way, they’d never take you for that show!”
But, what I meant was: My sil is awesome. She has this bubbly personality, yet is a straight-shooter. She’s cute as a button, too. If she was on there, everyone would root for her. You’d want her to stay around until the end because she is your favorite on the cast for the season.
But, of course, how she took it was that I think that she needs to lose an insane amount of weight.
Foot in mouth.
For those of you who actually have a brain to mouth filter, you can use this as your chance to say what you really meant. Or if you suffer from foot-in-mouth disease, you can make it right now, like I did. Head on over to Chief’s and join in!
