Words Unsaid

I’m not generally the type to let the thoughts fall out of my head unfiltered. So there are many occasions when I’ve not let loose things that were seething to come out, perhaps even things that should have been said.

I think too much, and that’s not a good thing. Balance is everything, and saying too little is as bad in the scheme of things as saying too much.

So the things I haven’t said range from the things I wanted to say – which probably would have included Bad Words, like “heck” and “dash it” – to a certain someone who asked whether a person we once knew had been a wife-beater, or….if it had been “just the odd biff”, to the things I should have said to the same question – which possibly should have included statistics and references to well-researched papers.

As to the things I’ve said in life that I shouldn’t have, I’d need a priest for that.
