You don’t mind if I take Tale #13 for myself, do you? It’s not being entirely selfish because I do need your input. As usual, I’m a bit clueless and still a bit behind my peers in this whole language of love thing (has anyone written that Book of Love for me yet?).
So here’s the deal: My friend knows this guy (let’s call him Rico Suave, because honestly, he is pretty damn smoooth), and for some reason unbeknownst to my friend (she’s, well, a bit naive, if you will), she cannot, cannot, cannot censor herself when she’s around Mr. Suave. He’s like some sort of mind-altering drug that leads my friend to say things to him she wouldn’t say to anyone else – and even things she probably shouldn’t be saying to Mr. Suave. My friends tells me it’s a delicate situation, and could say no more (apparently, the guy wasn’t around at the time…). But she did admit every conversation she has with this guy is one giant “so about what I said…” moment that she tends to replay over and over – and over – in her head.
My question for you, friends: How do you keep yourself from saying the wrong thing, short of taping your mouth shut whenever you’re around that guy? As I said, my friend could really use the insight here.
