Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down

I had a thought while running today that really stuck with me. I think it stuck with me because it was the perfect example of why I try not to say things out loud until I've properly thought them through.

Episode 3: Remember the Mission I'd already slid from my seat as the final bell rang. I could hear it coming from a mile and thirty minutes away. The countdown had officially begun halfway into Miss Holloway's stuffy lecture on 'Pride and Prejudice.'
