Gift of the Gab

I'm a talker. I am. I admit it. Some days I realize it more than others. Why am I this way? Was it a pre-disposition inherited from my talker of a mother? Or maybe because I kissed the Blarney Stone twice? Could be. Yesterday I realized just how much of a talker I am as I was chatting it up with a co-worker. Not only do I talk, but sometimes I have no idea where this talking is going. I rarely end up with the subject with which it originated. When this happens, it drives me absolutely crazy (however, I secretly hope the person with whom I am speaking doesn't really notice). And so it was yesterday. I would start with one subject, then before I even finished a thought - I was on to another! Sheesh! Dear Friends, thank you for being my friend - though I talk, talk, and talk more. I know it can be annoying, because sometimes there will be someone that talks my head off too! Bless us all, but mostly, bless you for listening.

Ya, ya, ya, your blog is so long. Shut up already. J/K

Iran,
Let me tell you something from someone who is not blessed with this gift of gab. I love being around people who talk a lot because I really enjoy listening and finding out about people. So it all balances out in the end. Don't be ashamed of your gift, with this gift you make many shy people feel like they are great conversationalist. True story.

I have a friend--he used to be known as Mr. Fourth of July for good reasons--with whom conversations can jump all over the map like playing Risk with a puppy. Our conversations are never boring or stupid. In fact, I love it when conversations jump around! It's proof that I'm talking with someone who has a quick mind and a ready wit, and that's something that doesn't come around often enough. Bless you and your gift! :)

E C.... you and I share this trait. Don't get down about it. It's a gift and don't evah let anyone tell you any different.

By the way, have you ever watched, listened to or read Julia Sweeney's "God Said Ha"? She talks about her mother's exceptional gift of gab in that! Its hilarious!

Thanks for your comment on my post! I love you TOO!

Erin-you definitely are not alone with this problem. I am a talker and on many occasions I have to make a conscious effort to keep my mouth shut. Kind of sad actually.

Melissa said...

You're JUST realizing this?! Just kidding. It's good that you have the gift of gab because I sure don't, plus you're funny so that makes it even better.

Someone has to talk for the both of us.
