The other day I met someone live and in person (not on Twitter or Facebook). When I told him that I knew his grandmother, he chuckled. And I immediately turned fifty shades of red.because the person I was thinking of was his mom and not his grandmother. I'm just glad she wasn't there to hear me say it.
There have been many other embarrassing stories that are much worse and I've paid a therapist to forget. Embarrassment is one of those things that I could probably avoid 50% of the time if I just slowed down to think.
In Proverbs 17:27 it says: A truly wise person uses few words;
a person with understanding is even-tempered.
