life is full of lessons
lots
tons
more sometimes than
one can handle
or at least
want
to
just getting through one
here
bear with
I’m a spouter
spout off kinda chick
open mouth
insert foot
a little thought might be good
but no not me
I just go for it
and ten times out of ten
I
rue
ruing here
just a little rue
ruing can be a good thing
if
you learn your lesson
which
I doubt I will
see I just don’t do well
with
constructive criticism
walked out of a creative writing class once
probably should have stayed
but
he was telling me what I should write
he was telling me how I should write
or
was he telling me what he likes
big
difference
not everybody will like me
or what I write
it’s ok
no hard feelings
some like merlot
some like chardonnay
the thing that
bugs
about the whole episode
is
me
and my big mouth
josie hon just shut-up
take a load off- relax for crying out loud
learn
grow
be happy
that said I just want to say
if ever I offend
trust me
I doubt I’ll learn my lesson
I really doubt it
but
it’s not from want of trying
and I am sorry
and know I do
walk around with a least one foot in my mouth
always

Josie,
I LOVE this! Being a fellow foot in the mouth person! There is a prayer that I like,
God keep one hand on my shoulder, and the other over my mouth! Yup that's me!

Hugs,
