Swallow Me Hole
Thinking about how often I put my foot in my mouth. I think the worst was during a discussion I had 3 or 4 years ago with a work colleague that went a little something like this:
Work Colleague: So I went swimming with the sharks in the aquarium over the weekend to try and get over my fear of deep ocean water.
Me: Oh I understand, I have the same fear. Ever since I was little, whenever I went into the pool my dad would hum the theme song from JAWS and to this day, I still have real trouble in open water.
WC: Mine kinda stems from when I was 15 and was on a ocean boating trip with my family. The boat capsized, my parents were eaten by sharks, my brother drowned. I was the only one who made it...
Me: Well that's kind of extreme isn't it?
Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this on a constant basis. Care to share?
