A recent conversation with an old friend reminds me of why I really shouldn't be allowed in polite company. We were remembering a chat we had a few years ago. I usually am a good listener, but that time - yeah, I blew it. In my mind, my friend had just told me that she had ended things with her girlfriend. I decided that it was time to tell her that, in my opinion, she could do better.
Imagine my surprise when she said "I'M. STILL. DATING. HER." Awkward!
I recovered quickly and said, "Oh. Hmmm.... well, I stand by what I said!"
