This is what happens when things start going well in my life. There I am, surrounded by the soft, fluffy pillows
of momentary contentment
when comments like that fall out of my brain
on to paper or worse, into spoken conversation
. I mean, "I'm so toasty
you could spread jam
on me" ? My little smile fades as I note everyone staring at me. All I can think is "Inner voice, inner voice
Kind of like the Christmas
when we were all opening gifts and someone gave me tupperware
. I love tupperware. It makes my life so organized and keeps my food fresh
! So I said "Tupperware! Excellent!" and tore into the box with previously unnoticed enthusiasm
. I looked up as the room got very quiet
. Everyone was staring at me.
Inner voice, dammit.
