I could have bitten my tongue off
I immediately regretted saying something; I wish I could have stopped myself from saying something. I could have bitten my tongue off as soon as I made tasteless joke, having forgotten that Mary's father had taken his life a couple of years ago. As soon as the ridiculous response was out of my mouth, I could've bitten my own tongue off.
