Brain Vomit

With increasing frequency over the past few months, I have found myself verbalizing my thoughts accidentally. That is not necessarily a bad thing...unless you have my brain. Below is an example of what I like to call Brain Vomit Disorder. The dialogue is from last night's dinner conversation.

Bryan: Marylyn’s uncle is such a cool guy.

Mom: Really? Marylyn, what makes him so cool?

Marylyn: He's just really fun. And he's a really smart guy, too. He gave up a full-ride scholarship to M.I.T. to become a priest.

Me: I bet he's kicking himself now.

A stunned silence blankets the table.

Me: Can someone pass the salt?

A beat.

Me: What? Oh. Ha. Can someone please pass the salt?
