You've heard of that show, "What Not to Wear"? How about "What Not to Say"? That's what came to my mind this weekend as we were preparing dinner, my sister was cutting the greens for the salad and guess what she said?
I know, you can't.
She said, "Oh no, I just sliced off my fingernail!"
And then I thought to myself, "There goes my appetite for salad tonight!"
She did assure me that she found the piece but since I just wasn't sure about whether it matched up to the half that was still attached, I decided to stick with the main course. (sorry, K!) .
Other things that you shouldn't say?
"When are you due?"
"Don't take this the wrong way, but....."
"Sure you can have a blank check!"
"Boys will be boys!"
