i know there is an old motto,'words and water are easily poured,but impossible to recover.' do you think twice before you say something? sometimes i dont when i am with friends,my words easily poured out,and i dont know if i hurt my friends,i just didnt mean it.i think i should learn this art,think fast and speak low.

I am like a flowing river lol. I don't think I can keep silent for very long, My husband misses me so much because he loves to hear me natter away as he is a typical shy Chinese man and I am a typical fiery Greek woman lol. SO fire and water make steam lol. I just speak from my heart, so many people often do not understand me, which now I think is a good thing, who knows one day I may become formless hahaha. I always was different from those around me and I used to cry in my Childhood because I had no one that wanted to share my interests like philosophy and history.

I try to but most of the time, especially if I'm excited to talk about something I just blurt out the words. But now that I'm a little bit older, I do try to think first before saying. That would get me in trouble sooner or later. Here's a joke about this topic: Our crew at an ambulance company works 24hour shifts. The sleeping quarters consist of a large room with several single beds, so we get to know one another's habits, like who snores or talks in their sleep. While I was having my teeth examined by a dentist one day, he noticed that some of my teeth were chipped. "It looks like you clench your jaw at night," he said. "No way," I blurted without thinking. "No one has ever said I grind my teeth, and I sleep with a lot of people!" *LOL* =)
