Oops!  I did it again.  I’m not referring to the lyrics of a Britney Spears’ song, but rather my inability to quit while I’m ahead; specifically, my habit of repeating history (and not the kind that edifies).  I learned something last night; however.  I should never begin a serious conversation while still in a condition of Bikram-induced “yogi-brain” (a state of “I don’t care about anything” contracted by performing 90 minutes of Hatha Yoga positions in a room controlled to a temperature of 105 degrees with 40-percent humidity).  Secondly, I don’t need to eat a figurative house after burning 600+ calories.  And third, as much as I’d like to, I cannot redo my failed conversation any more than I can take back what I ate.  The good news is that Today is a new day, and I can take what I learned going forward.  Hopefully that means keeping my mouth shut more and hurting those close to me less.  And eating fewer houses.

What have you learned lately?
