Today's question

Why do people have to spoil a good thing by opening their mouths?

Whether it's a post-coital embrace in bed, that perfectly serene moment at a romantic restaurant, following your boss's awful joke in an all-office meeting, simply vegging with a bunch of friends, avoiding anything of substance with your family or nodding inconsequentially to random strangers, there are certain indelible moments where the perfect thing to say is absofuckinglutely nothing at all.

And I'm not sure that's a skill that one can learn or that naturally develops with age.

Today's advice: when in doubt, just shut the fuck up.
