Me And My Big Mouth

There are so many times in my life when I should'a stuck my foot in it. SO, MANY, TIMES. I think I've learned my lesson, and then I do it again. Wha?!! I had a few occasions when I was in college that a good girlfriend of mine would ask my opinion about a guy. I would give her my honest assessment without even thinking twice...many times not such a good turn, she marries him!! "Foot in Mouth!" Now who's the schmuck? How shallow of me. Anyway, I'm sure I've done it without even noticing. I'm sorry if its happened to you. Ok, so onto my point. Maybe not such a Dramatic event, but all the same..."foot in mouth". I'm sitting there in Church today. Sitting in Relief Society with all the ladies, doing some kind of group discussion. My prego stomach remembers the yummy cookies it had at Sister-in-Law Mitzi's just two days earlier. It growls, and I blurt out "oooh.....I want hot fresh baked Chocolate Chip Cookies!!" Of course I had to be sitting a row just behind Bishop's wife, who happens to be the Blue Ribbon cook of the ward! She turns and looks at me funny and says, "Right Now?". I'm like "oh, yah." Two seconds later I'm thinking, "why did I say that? Now she's going to go home and bake me cookies". Church is over. I come home and start stuffing my big mouth full of Totino's Pepperoni Pizza Rolls and Chocolate Kisses and Hugs. In my fattened stupor I fall asleep and wake up just to stuff that same mouth a Quarter of a bag of Cheetos Puffs! The next thing I know there is a ring at the door...and who do you suppose it is. Of Course!! Bishop's wife! With a Big Plate of Hot Chocolate Chip cookies all for my little ol' self, and my big ol' mouth! Maybe if I did put my foot in it, I'd have a better chance at not gaining a Thousand pounds this pregnancy. By the way Kathy....thankyou so much for the cookies :) They were BLUE RIBBON!


  1. whatever! It got you chocolate chip cookies!! :) I think I may have to try that approach!! That was awful sweet of her, but I'm sure she understands WHY you wanted them!!
    Yay for chocolate chip cookies!!!

  2. Um that is not putting your foot in your mouth. Trust me, I've done it too many times. Like talking crap about someone when their sibling is sitting right in front of me. Now that is putting your foot in your mouth. If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. That's what I need to keep telling myself.

    That is awesome she brought you cookies. That was very thoughtful of her.

  3. She's amazing isn't she? Gosh - I bet those cookies were wonderful! :) I don't think you need to insert your foot - plus in those other circumstances where people asked your opinion - you gave it. There's nothing wrong with that :)

  4. Haha, nice one! I'll have to try that sometime, afterall it DID pay off, right?!! yummy!
