Holiday parties...have you said things you kind of regret?

So…after a couple cocktails, one of my attorneys, great guy, married, not the sharpest tool in the tool shed.

Being the honest chick I am, I mentioned this in conversation…everyone knows she is dumb as a stump and only married her because she is younger…

When you say things that everyone knows as truth except them, how do you recover?
Do you explain its the alcohol and your opinion, or just go hide under a rock?
