Or, as my sister told me (on more than one occasion, I believe): “Jack, just because you think of something, and it’s true, that doesn’t mean you need to say it.” Now if someone asks why I’m being quiet (happened last week in a meeting about my parents getting home healthcare assistance) I say, “I occasionally say inappropriate things and upset people, so I try not to say too much.”
