Where I come from, there is a pidgin adage that goes “Your mouth go put you for trouble” , translation? Your mouth will put you in trouble or Watch your tongue.
In my opinion, it could mean something else…
Imagine that I finally get the chance to meet face to face with my crush, someone I’ve always admired and dreamed of from afar, but somehow it doesn’t work out cos he backs out after 3 minutes of our conversation, and returns to default mode; always greeting me from afar.
Imagine that you’re an ambitious youth with verve and charisma, personality, style, ideas and propositions for a big deal, and you’re finally face to face with the one person who can make your dreams come true, but as you speak with him, his expression changes, his nose shrinks, his chest rises like his gasping for air, and you notice, if you’re that observant, that his pupils retract as you speak, even with all your enthusiasm.
And now you wonder, “Was it something I said?”…probably not, but if you ever stop to think, maybe it wasn’t your tongue that went wrong, could be that you went wrong with your tongue.
You may be careful enough to watch your tongue, but don’t be too busy to take time to wash it, yea, I mean brush it. Active or passive negligence toward your mouth could cause either pains (tooth aches, etc) or embarrassment. White teeth just won’t do, people will still avoid you if you give off a fowl smell. There’s a reason why such smell is called ‘Offensive’ …LOL
PS::::::Halitosis maybe due to what you eat, what you just ate, hereditary or just out of your own negligence, but if you treat that pink lady right, you will have avoided 45% of the troubles your tongue could put you in.
For more information, consult your physician 😉
