...Cancer.. spot on... I just.. my God I'm like that so much. "Yeah, hey can you maybe.. give us a moment? i mean, i'm not trying to be rude or anything so don't think i'm trying to come across that way i just really have something that only so-and-so needs to hear.. it's not that you're not important cause you totally are and i reaaaally don't wanna make you feel uncomfortable but..." and then it boils over into a full blown game of round-n-round until someone just goes "shhhhhh. i get it."
I applaud you, good sir. MOTHERING ZODIAC SIGN IS MOTHERING AND DOESN'T WANT TO MAKE ANYONE FEEL UNWANTED! ...... I'll hush now. <3
But we don't have to go to bits over every single look or word; I for one have learned ways to tame the worry-snail and keep it from circling round. Sometimes you have to not worry about causing offense and say what you must say.
My worry-snail got tired recently from overuse by the same people for the same reason.. Snail is on Vacation and has been replaced by a sign that says "If you want Sympathy you can find it in the dictionary somewhere between shit and syphilis." .... Huzzah for social awkwardness either way!?
