“I spoke to you in cautious tones
you answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
my silence is my self-defense.”
~ from “And So It Goes” by Billy Joel
You’d think I’d learn to keep my mouth shut, but you’d be so wrong. Strong opinions get me in trouble every time! It’s not that I’m a lout or a big mouth, sometime things just come out when I least expect! I suspect this need to express gets my best at every turn. You’d think I’d learn.
Where all are concerned, I’m told my fount of words is like a vast ocean. I should use great caution if I wish to run silent and deep. I should keep my opinions under check in order to protect myself from myself. Otherwise, there’s no helping me. So I’ll tread lightly and be slightly less vocal. That should keep me out of trouble.
The squeaky wheel
can be easily replaced.
Use lube, or lose face!
