Do you ever come across those people that just don't know when to keep their mouths shut? I had a conversation tonight that made me think of people I know or have met that just don't know when to keep their mouths shut. I'll preface this by saying that I tend to not get close to people that can't hold their tongue. So, if you think I might be talking about you, it's probably a pretty good bet that I'm not. I don't think anybody but my close friends and family read this blog. Anyway, I think there comes a point in a person's life, or social development, when they need to realize that just because they have an opinion on something or they know something about a certain subject doesn't mean that everybody wants to hear about it! I remember an old saying; "Know what you talk about, don't talk about what you know." Sometimes, even when these blabbermouths are trying to help, they just end up hurting and offending because they don't realize that their opinion isn't wanted. Often these people are conversation killers. They come into a conversation, change the subject, and then dominate the conversation. Yo! The jibberish you're spouting out isn't what we were talking about when you came into the conversation, so butt out! I guess I could add these people to my list of things that must go.

My favorite season

Fall is here again. I love fall, but it's not because the leaves change (although that helps). I love driving around town with the windows open while I wear a light jacket. I love going outside and feeling the crisp air. I like huddling up in my bed at night and hearing the furnace start. Fall doesn't have the scorching hot of summer. I like the snow of winter, but I get tired of it after a while (shoveling is a pain). You don't have to do any shoveling in fall and you're not sick of everything being wet like you are when spring comes around. I just have one question though. Why does this season have two names (fall/autumn)? None of the other seasons have two names. Anybody know?
