Still just human


Look, I'm outspoken. I know this, you know this. People who work with me know this best of all.

{OK, maybe Husband knows this best of all... co-workers a close second.}

I say what I think, even if it isn't what I mean.
But I don't say it unless I truly believe it's what I mean.
You know what I'm trying to say, everyone says things they don't quite mean sometimes. And it's not that we are meaning to lie... sometimes we are just confused about what we are really thinking/feeling and come to a different conclusion after we've thought about it a bit.

Except I do this almost every time I speak. I need an "undo" button for nearly each and every statement I make.

The point you're supposed to take away from all this is that I will be real with you. I will be too real. I will tell you if you're being a bratty bossy-pants or if you're showing too much cleavage (unfortunately I said both these things to people today). I'll probably regret it later, as normal people tend to feel offended over such statements and I don't like to make people feel bad, but you can trust that I'm not keeping you in the dark. What you see is what you get with me, take it or leave it.

{Many people choose to leave it.}

Sometimes the thing I said to you isn't even important, but it feels important to you. Sometimes it was just a fleeting thought I had (that I failed to contain) but it sticks with you for a long time. Sometimes I am just thoughtlessly letting things tumble out of my mouth.

For these times, I am sorry for those I have hurt.

For those other times, when I'm saying what everyone was thinking but couldn't bear to say? Well, you're welcome.


  1. i like it... keep it up. we need more people who say it how it is! and people need to stop being offended so easy... right?

  2. hahaha Mom, laughed so hard at your comment!

  3. There is nothing wrong with saying what is on your mind...except if you tell me that my eyebrows are unruly, I will get a complex.
    I know that they are. I'm holding out until I have surgery. Can't have the surgical staff examining my eyebrows while I'm in a happy drug induced coma.
    This has nothing to do with your post.
    I apologize.

  4. Just wondering what "too much cleavage" looks like??? Post a picture. Some of us don't think there's any such thing in real life.

    [Hmmmmmm, I wonder how Aubrey inherited her ability to think out loud and wishes she could take some of it back? I think she came by it honestly!] :)

    1. I will absolutely not post a picture. Ew.

      Yes, I believe I come by it perfectly honestly, Dad. *sigh*


Comments make me ultra happy! Tell me who you are, what you think, why you're here...
