It’s funny when you have a question in your mind, you want to ask someone… but who? You figure you’ll just ask the person closest to you but, seconds later of asking you know the answer. Then you must apologize and explain that you’ve figured out the answer from asking the question.
Isn’t that one of the most awkward moments? I do it all the time! It drives me crazy sometimes because I feel like I just brought the other person down into a spiral of unnecessary confusion.
I guess a way to avoid that situation is to THINK before you SPEAK, but like brainstorming, sometimes it just best to hear the question from a voice. Too bad society views talking to one’s self an unacceptable act.
