Re: "Man, I wish I could take that back"
Great stuff. Sometimes its just best to keep your mouth shut.
My friends sister was pregnant, but then I saw her at a party carrying a drink. I was like, HEY you're not allowed to drink. She looked at me and asked Why not? I immediately replied I dunno and walked off fast. Made myself apologize later when I found out she had a miscarriage. Now my wife goes through that, and I feel even worse about saying it.
If something tragic happened to me, I think my sense of humor would let me just laugh it off to the fact that they messed up and said a bonehead thing. As long as they seemed to feel bad, then I think it'd actually give me a good laugh or two.
