  •  It was just a split second. There was no (0+ / 0-)

    explanation called for.

    The closest thing I ever heard was a friend of mine had 4 kids and thought he was an expert on babies. That was back in the day when babies were on display. So the he got all full of himself and started going pretty baby, pretty baby, ugly baby, pretty baby, ugly baby. Well one of the 'ugly babies' belonged to the man he was talking to, who didn't think his baby was ugly at all.

    So in that split second, I didn't say 'pretty baby' and there was no way to take it back.

    Things happen so fast. Maybe sometimes the people who made you feel the need to explain, went home thinking they would give anything to take back the careless look or word that led down that path.

    Sometimes the only thing I can do is hope I don't do it again.
