et semel emissum volat irrevocabile verbum

(and a word once uttered flies abroad never to be recalled" [Horace)]

or, to repurpose something parallel I've heard attributed to browngirl:

"That which is said cannot be unsaid."

But it's better to know than not, eh?

Thanks to dpolicar for the Latin expression.

It takes a community to be poly.

And for all of you who help me with advice and comfort, thank you. I am so lucky to have you all in my life.

I would shout-out by name, but then this post would get very long, and outing some of you would be rude. :)
