Most of us guys wouldn’t actually say that with our wife there. Today, they’d say that John has poor impulse control..What’s bad is when you offend someone that you didn’t even know had much interest. One time I offended a woman I knew by mentioning another woman. From her reaction— good thing she didn’t have a knife at her disposal— she apparently thought we were much more than what she’d indicated before that. Ummm, maybe let me know before that? While we men miss signs, there really didn’t appear to be much interest other than friendship. I think the Lord was looking out for me, though, by stopping anything from developing: the general consensus, even among her countrymen, was that she was nuts. If things had developed, I’d probably end up being a statistic.
