Ok, I seriously need to put more thought into what I say before opening my mouth! There’s a reason I like writing more than talking… stupid comments are less likely to make it out into the world when I write because I have the chance to go back and edit.
I swear I put my foot in my mouth at least once a day, especially with other women which, I’m convinced, is a curse. It is definitely one of my greatest faults!
Yesterday, Ashley watched Dylan for us so that Andy and I could go out for a “farewell” dinner with his old boss, “R”, and his fiancee, “A”. Anyway, since they are getting married in the not too distant future, I was asking questions about the wedding and then when she and I were in the restroom right before we left, I asked her about her dress. She said it was hard to describe and showed me a picture. I then told her how I’d seen someone else with a similar dress recently and that they have the same build (here begins my spiral downwards). She looked at me with an expression that said, “and what kind of build is that?” so I said, “I mean an athletic build” (which I meant as a compliment, but then I remembered someone once told me that, that description is a backhanded compliment, WHICH IS NOT WHAT I MEANT!) UGH!
So I have no idea how she took it, but “A”, if you’re reading this, I would like to apologize for my thoughtlessness. I hope you realize I think you are beautiful and are going to make a GORGEOUS bride! And to anyone else who thinks I’ve said something to slight them in any way, I promise I didn’t mean it! I am not passive aggressive. In fact, I am confrontational and direct to a fault, so if I was trying to insult you, you would know it!
