Person A: blah blah blah, blah blah, you know?
Person B: Oh, yeah! ( fidgeting with something, trying to look busy)
Person A: Blah blah blah blah, blah blah blah. Blah blah! Blah blah blah...can you believe it?
Person B: Wow, no, that's amazing! (Edging towards door)
Person A: Blah blah blah....
Person B: Uh huh...(halfway through door)
(half an hour later)
Person A: Blah blah blah blah blah blah! Blah...

if that's all there is don't even bother with the 3 Min's, just shut up right from the start. only conversation that fore fills is the spontaneous one, all the rest is parrots noise.

I have found myself guilty of this. I don't have any living relatives or any friends I see on a daily basis. I think what happens is lonley people like me get excited and have so much to say when they finally encounter another human being in conversation. I also have been teased with the fact that I say "Ya know what I am saying" a lot. I have been for years. I think it's some sort of reasurance i subconciensly need?

I'm guilty of this every evening. For the most part, I spend the day by myself, with my own thoughts. I talk to myself, and win most of the arguments. When my darlin' comes home from work, I want to talk, to share, to communicate -- that's the real core of intimacy, y'know.
