Steak and lobster response to a cupcake situation

I’m trying a new humorous way to say “You might be overreacting”. I find myself caught up in watching what I say in a self editing mode. Here’s an example.

I need to give myself and my thoughts a break. I edit myself and I choose to stay away from salient subjects. What’s left to share? what I saw in the sky or what I ate for lunch. Yep
