A friend said something about "Testimony Remorse" regretting or wondering what came out of your mouth, I always have "Conversation Remorse" (especially after 10:00pm) and think about what I say after I can't take it back, worry about it, then apologize if I get the courage only to find out they don't know what I am talking about!
