What to say when someone tells you to spit it out

How to respond to SPIT YOUR WORDS OUT

Have you ever tried to tell someone something, yet it just took a while to get your words out? You may have what you want to say on the tip or your tongue, but it isn’t coming out or your mouth or maybe you can’t remember a name.

Not everyone is blessed with the ability to just talk and chat away. For some of us, it is a big deal to talk to people that we don’t know very well. It doesn’t help when someone is yelling at you to hurry up and spit out your words.

I have one friend who can’t remember certain words since having kids. The word is on the tip of her tongue, but instead, she stands there like an idiot and can’t remember what to say.
