That thought occured to me, although it's not what I had in mind.

Indeed..

 

People also ramble and repeat themselves when they're trying to avoid a certain subject or working up the nerve to talk about something.

 

Always a relieve :) I haven't had a baby boy so I can't really compare, but baby girls are the best!

And some people are just easily distracted and the story bounces around as their attention does. I know some good hearted people who need some gentle correction to keep on the track of a story. The difference is they actually have a point they are trying to make and get easily distracted. With them, it's communication issues and difficulty staying on one track when telling a story. The trick to telling the difference is that they usually let you know what story they are trying to tell before they get distracted, and when someone points out they have drifted they come right back. Others feel the need to include every detail ever in the history of ever, so they feel compelled to tell you 8 other stories to tell you then one story they started out to tell, and sometimes the two I described interweave.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

Awesome news!  Firstborn daughters are a gift! ;)

I'm just happy the kid is healthy. The nice thing about being a 21st century parent is the gender of the child isn't important when it comes to passing along my nerdy interests, the kid will like it or not independent of gender.

Today is a good day. I did the NF Beginner Bodyweight workout for the first time since January. It didn't feel good to do the workout, but it felt good to be done with the workout. I've worked out three times this week, a best for this challenge. It's nice to have some momentum to roll into zero week.

What it says about you is that you like Taco Bell. There was one across the street from my seminary, and I wasn't above getting something there when I was broke and hungry. I'm not saying people can't like Taco Bell, just that I dispute it being the #1 Mexican restaurant in the country.

To be fair, that is a little bit like saying McDonalds is the biggest burger restaurant in the country. Technically correct, but it stretches the term "restaurant" further than most people are willing to do.

A therapist once told me that people who never shut up sometimes do so because they fear if they ever stop talking they'll never be heard.

 

As someone who a) talks to much and b) is often not heard (I’ve been known to have an entire conversation with myself when my family is not hearing me)  this was a lightbulb moment.  But, I am tired of being told “I didn’t hear you” or “you didn’t say that”.

Perhaps the issue sometimes is that people who don't feel heard don't know what to do when someone actually listens to them?

It's such a rarity for me that I don't know how to react when it does happen...
