THE CHOKER 45/365
"Wait...I can't answer right now...can't you see I'm choking to death? Give me just a minute - as soon as I'm dead, I'll give you that information."
There are times when I'm asked a question that is a little too personal but, for the life of me, I can't think fast enough to avoid answering. That really makes me mad...at myself.
Why can't I just return the question with a question like..."WHY DO YOU WANT TO KNOW"?
OR...have a coughing fit like "The Choker."
I could also just stare at them...count to ten...anything but answer right away.
But instead, I stutter - I stammer - then feeling like an idiot...give them the answer.
What do you do when you don't want to answer a question?
