Hi,

1. You're delivering a presentation and notice a glaring misspelling up (Q: what's up here mean?)on the screen for all to see.

"Don't try to talk about it too much, you may end up putting your foot in your mouth."(Q: pleaes explain this phrase) Do your best to correct the blunder and then move on.


'Up' here just adds a little emphasis to the idea that the screen is raised in a prominent position.

'To put your foot in your mouth' would be an embarassing and foolish thing to do. As an idiom, it means 'To say something really foolish and embarrassing'.

Best wishes, Clive

So the suggestion is when making such a mistake, just briefly point it out and then move on; do not try to explain why you made such an error because such an explanation is foolish. Right?
