If you should say, for example, feel some mounting frustration at someone in your world :::cough cough::: I totally mean The Mr. ::cough sputter cough cough::: and feel the need to mutter snide/sarcastic/petty/you get my drift comments under your breath about said person, learn from my mistake.
Before doing so – check the area for your offspring. Do NOT do so within even POSSIBLE earshot of said offspring.
Because family car rides go from awesome to awkward quicker than The Mr taking a corner inappropriately fast when Jr remarks innocently from the back seat “But daddy, you don’t know where we are going. You don’t even know your ass from your elbow.”
BTW – just because it is awkward, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.
*also – when you write a blog post… make sure it doesn’t sit in your drafts folder for a couple weeks. Like this one did. Good tip, Keri.
