Amazing how quick your tongue is, pity it always works alone, without the benefit of a brain to back it up. You lash out, and after what seems a good minute, your eyes go very round. That expression marks the moment your brain kicked into gear, and you realize what you said and to whom. That’d be the right time to apologize, and you know it too, but as soon as you open your mouth to say "sorry," the process starts again and instead of "sorry" you mutter "sucker". Your brain never seems able to catch up to your stupidity.
