Shhh. Nobody mention the poultry.

“Do you prefer to talk, text message, or a different communication method?”

For someone who writes a lot ( when not distracted by the soul-sucking lure of all things that are “Facebook games”) I’m not actually that chatty.

Sure, I can waffle on if I’m in that sort of mood or particularly agitated. For example, it’s probably best not to mention chickens if you want to get a word in edgeways. I feel the itch to sidetrack into my usual poultry-inspired rant just typing out the word, but I’ll spare you this time.

So, given a choice between text or talking I would choose silence. I’m a listener, a people-watcher. I often know more about folk by keeping my trap shut and my eyes open than they know themselves. It’s not like I have nothing to say. I have opinions, viewpoints and ideas, but given the opportunity I want to know yours first.

[ hmm. still thinking about those chickens.]

I used to spend a lot of time on the phone. In fact, I was one of those annoying telesales people, for which I feel I still have a huge karmic debt to pay, despite it being 20 years ago. It wasn’t me though, and every day I’d put on my headset and sit dreaming about

[chickens. chickens. chickens!!!!!!]

a more meaningful and creative career.

I really ought to get round to that. After all, I’m no spring chi…. ARGH !!!!

      I knew the second I typed it that I was going to have to explain this at some point 😀 I’ll write about it some time this week as one of my daily entries, but rest assured I don’t have some sort of “chickens in suspenders” porn fetish, and haven’t had for ages and ages. Honest.

  1. Silence and telepathy are underutilized in our world today. Its either that a) not many folks have such abilities, or b) everyone does have the ability but cannot harness it because television commercials have unhinged our ability to think for ourselves. Talking is great, but I think typing is greater. Sorry about the link (its a fave of mine and I thought it might fit well here).
