I wish I could say that I have chosen every spoken word carefully this week.

Of course, I haven’t. Sometimes my mouth works independently of my brain…running ten steps ahead of my mind. Other times, a word is on the tip of my tongue, but won’t come out – leaving me with hand gestures and crazy facial expressions.

I like to communicate precisely. I like to leave no doubt of my intentions or meaning.

And, frankly, I want to have the right spin on what I have to say. That may sound shifty or deceitful…even political.  But it is true – I want, as much as possible, to have my words perceived in the way I want them to be perceived. I want to be understood.
