thinking and hitting

“You can’t think and hit simultaneously, ”
observed with great wisdom Y. Berra,
but words can offend far more heinously
than hits that you may make in error.

Yogi Berra once said: “You can’t think and hit at the same time.

    Physical abuse is no less damaging than psychological abuse, Gersh, and I should know! ! !

    Round these parts, we say 'He's so dumb he can't walk and chew gum at the same time! ' But G. you are right, words, which can be apologized for, still cannot be taken back can they? (Report) Reply
