Careful

That was uncomfortable.  An ex-colleague called into the office a few minutes ago, and stopped to talk whilst waiting for an appointment.  It was, in theory, a great opportunity to catch up on life events, including a little office gossip (not that I occupy a gossipy environment, very thankfully).

The problem is that the ex-colleague is now a journalist, a fact I couldn't forget for a moment; I was constantly aware of protecting my employer, and hence myself.
I'm a guarded person anyway, and struggle to reveal personal information even to friends, but it was awkward to be consciously self-censoring and pre-planning the strict factual accuracy of deliberately innocuous statements, whilst 'casually' conversing with a previously close acquaintance.
