I've realized I say a lot of stupid things at weddings to accidentally embarrass myself. For instance.. quite a few times I've asked someone "oh are you the Grandma??" and their reply is ALWAYS "no. I'm the AUNT!" One of the time's she was actually the mother. Boy did I feel stupid after that one. I need to learn to ask.. oh are you the Aunt?! Then if she is the Grandma she'll feel good about herself! ha
During shoots I tend to call people by the color of their shirt. "red.. move to your left. green.. lower your chin". last month during a mixed wedding I said "I'm just going to call you by your color....... of the shirt that is" I felt horribly stupid and racist sounding after that. I'm seriously anything but racist. I swear! Someone save me from myself! ha
How do I learn to keep my mouth shut from these horrid comments I always make?!
