I long have suffered what some smartaleck somewhere has coined “Foot In Mouth Disease” — the chronic propensity to saying the wrong things at the most inopportune of times. The name may sound funny but there’s nothing to laugh about the disease itself. Time and again, it causes pain and/or severe embarrassment, leaves haunting regret as the inevitable side-effect, and often causes irreparable wounds and unsightly scars in relationships.
So help me, God. I need to free myself from this destructive disease once and for all.
