I have a problem - I often blurt things out without realizing I'm speaking out loud. Usually these things just come out of me for no-one's benefit but my own but without fail they are overheard and more often than not laughter ensues. I can't help it.
Today during a lesson we were asked what to explain the word "Amen". I said, "that's what she said." Now I've watched several seasons of The Office and can honestly say I don't understand why that particular phrase is funny, but the laughter of the sister sitting next to me indicated that it may have been slightly off-colored. Can anyone explain "that's what she said" to me please? Did I mention I can't help it?
Then later at ward choir practice our director was trying to emphasize that the part of the song we were singing was the pinnacle, the most important part, the part that needed emphasis and I, trying to help her find the right word, blurted out "climax". Honestly people, it was not meant in an off-colored way, but the laughter of the sister sitting next to me indicated that it was taken that way. I really really can't help it!
I don't premeditate these things. Here's hoping for a more appropriate tomorrow :)
