Silence can be golden


“You’re looking nice again!” I said to Mrs R. “You don’t usually look nice on a Sunday morning.” I paused…

That hadn’t come out as I expected. What I meant was, you’re wearing that pretty summer dress that you wore yesterday. I really like it.. I could feel the hole begin to grow beneath my feet. I needed to explain quickly.

What I said was, “I didn’t mean that.”

What she heard was, I didn’t mean that you’re looking nice.

So I said, “you often look nice.”

Oh dear.

It was a frosty morning. Despite the sunshine.

    Note. Having dug a hole, stop digging before it’s too deep to get out of.
