What was Biden going to say?

During his address to Congress this week Pres. Biden was talking about the George Floyd case, and a conversation with his daughter. "She's a little tyke so I was kneeling down to talk to her. So I could sss, look her in the eye." What do you think he was going to say before changing his mind and going with "look her in the eye"? Clearly it was an S word, but which one?
