We went to town today and saw some neighbors at the restaurant. The wife is retiring from teaching at the local ag college and my mouth engaged before my brain. I said something like, "Hey, didn't I see where you were retiring? When's the big party?" Aaaaand that's when my brain caught up with me. The party was to be a surprise. Her husband redirected well and we just went on, but I'm still MORTIFIED that I spilled the beans. (She's a sharp gal. It won't take her long to figure it out.)
Me and my big mouth. You'd think I'd learn to just say "hi" and move on before I get myself in trouble. If anyone is looking for me, I think I'll be banished to the quilt cave.
