Ever say something and realize it’s been received about a thousand times harsher than you meant it?

And you just want to grasp at the air and clobber all the words back into your mouth? Just kidding! Never happened! Look! Something shiny!

And then you spend the next several agonizing minutes trying to clarify your comment, only to keep digging a deeper hole for yourself?

And then later, when you’re alone, you replay the entire awkward scenario in your head and end up with your forehead down on the table in a Flop of Shame?

Yeah. Words suck sometimes. Poorly planned ones, that is. Blasted English degree, you keep failing me!
