Imagine a Clever Title Here




"It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt." 
~Mark Twain






Hmm. Seems to me that could apply to blogging, too. So today I'll try to leave you with a little doubt. ;)

But I do have a "Special Secret" for you over at The Debutante Ball today, and I'd love to see you there.

Before you go, are you more likely to open your mouth when you shouldn't or keep it closed when you should speak up? Do tell! 

Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend. :)

I love the Mark Twain quote, and right now I'm thinking about 2 former bosses of mine. Yeah, we *thought* the one guy was dumb, but the next one made him look really smart.

Over the years, I am finally learning to keep the mouth shut. Finally. Took a while, though. Swallowed my foot a lot.

After years offending everyone in sight I have learned to keep my mouth shut. Now if someone truly annoys me I just punch them in the face.

One of my favorite quotes. As to your question, I seem to do both. Ticks me off, LOL.

Oh, I suffer from foot-in-mouth disease. Years ago, friends of my husband's had a baby. They called to tell me they'd had a boy. "What's his name?" I asked.

"Aloysious."

I laughed. "No, really, what did you name him?"

They haven't spoken to us since.

Oh, yeah, there's no doubt in anybody's mind by the time I'm done flapping my gums.

I prefer to call it "clarity".

Sadly, I am good at not only sharing inappropriate comments and keepig appropriate comments to myself.

Thank God none of my friends have a kid named Aloysius.

Oh, yeah, I do both. I'm working on it but bad habits die hard.

In my younger days I wasn't discreet enough. Now I usually am but there are moments...

I LOVE that quote!

Al said...

Twain was always good for a one-liner!

Maery Rose said...

I unfortunately do both but more regret the things I've left unsaid.

Patsy said...

Great quote ... it's advice I should follow more often.

Pearl said...

I could tell you about it.

:-)

But I won't.

Greetings from Mpls!
