How to Bite Your Tongue

And avoid totally catastrophic faux pas

1. Open your mouth to get ready to say something, but don’t.

2. Think carefully about the implications of your next few words.

3. Gently press your teeth against your tongue.

4. Find something constructive yet noncommittal to say.

5. Smile!
