Another Theory

I have a theory (I know, surprising, huh?)
I think, when you’re born, you are allotted a certain number of words for your lifetime.
Some people get more than others.
Me, I was given a multitude.
When I was a baby my father couldn’t wait till I learned to talk so we could have deep meaningful conversations.
When I finally did learn to talk he lamented, “Doesn’t she EVER shut up?”
But I think I may be coming to the end of my allowance.

I stay at home all day, alone, seeing no one. If it wasn’t for telemarketers I wouldn’t talk to anyone for days on end!

Husband comes home from work and tells uproariously funny stories about some of the customers he encounters (which I would love to share with you but can’t figure out how to clean them up enough not to offend anyone! LOL)
We sit at the dinner table, listening to the TV and saying very little.
I’m afraid we have become one of those older couples we used to make fun of at restaurants, who would sit and eat their meal in complete silence.
We would always say how sad, they’ve run out of things to say to each other.
I wrack my brain to try and think of some witty topic and come up empty.
My father would laugh to think I’ve finally run out of things to say!


  1. ROBIN!!! You have TONS to say. Still. And I for one, am really glad you're saying it...even if it is via blogging. I think that the old adage, silence is golden, is good for us slightly older married folks. It's comfortable to me to be in the house with Jerry and not really have to say a lot about anything. We just kind of 'Know' at this point. But I do wish you'd tell us some of those stories of hubby's. Even if you can't clean them up!

  2. Silence is like the white space in artwork. It's not really blank, but gives meaning to the entire work. And I'd really love to hear your hubby's stories.

  3. I'm with annie and CJ - you have loads to say...go on we're waiting (:

  4. Isn't it lovely when you get so comfortable you don't have to fill up every space with talking for the sake of it?
    As for having nothing to say, not so, you're very interesting :) xx


I appreciate your comments!
