I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but I could not find an old thread with the search feature. I see in the Cunda Kammaraputta Sutta that it says:
"Abandoning idle chatter, he abstains from idle chatter. He speaks in season, speaks what is factual, what is in accordance with the goal, the Dhamma, & the Vinaya. He speaks words worth treasuring, seasonable, reasonable, circumscribed, connected with the goal."
However, I'm not exactly sure how this translates to practice in my everyday life. Any clarification on what idle speech is and what exactly I should be avoiding? Thanks in advance.

IOW, take what I say with a grain of salt, for I likely know as little or less than you do.
