"My feet are sore."
The words just slipped out at work today.
I didn't mean to say them, but my feet were hurting me – not horribly, but hurting nonetheless – and I just blurted it out without thinking.
"Your feet are hurting?" asked my colleague.
"Oh, they're just bothering me for some reason," I said, or something to that effect, waving it off.
I totally hadn't meant to say anything, I just said it, then had to figure out what to say to cover for myself, so to speak.
Weird to have to do that, to feel you have to do that.
Don't you think?
