Why is it that sometimes words just come out wrong? Please tell me it happens to you, too. I mean, I can be talking to someone and all of a sudden, my tongue just takes over and says something completely different than what my brain tells it to. Like you haven't noticed.
Case in point:
I’m filling in at the front desk of work and the receptionist takes a break. I answer the phone and they ask for an attorney who is currently talking on another line. So I say, “He’s on the other line, could you hold just a pinute, mease?”
Could you hold just a PINUTE, MEASE? Who talks like that?????
And then there’s the time a friend was watching a beauty pageant on TV and I said, “Look at him sitting there with his hung tanging out (of course I meant “tongue hanging out”).
There are many more such times, but I just can’t embarrass myself with them all. It’s one of the reasons I’m afraid to speak in public. Who knows what might come out? I can’t risk it.
Does this ever happen to you?
