Speaking in Disclaimers

Sunday Sol

Conversations are making me nervous these days and I’ve noticed myself speaking in disclaimers. I make a comment and I immediately follow up with a statement to make sure no one is offended by what I’ve just said. The comments I’m speaking of are not political, just normal, everyday, casual comments.

I’ve become conversationally paranoid. Is everybody really waiting to pounce on any statement that can be construed in some way as inappropriate or offensive?

I guess whether this is true or not, I need to relax.
