I had some extra time this morning, which I could have used to write a really good blog post. Instead I fell into conversation with a co-worker, which I must say I enjoyed very much.
There I was, enjoying myself, when Joanie came along and said, “Do you ever stop talking?”
“Very rarely,” I answered, which of course she already knew. Then I thought of something else: “When you’re talking I have a hard time getting a word in edgewise.” Which I believe she also already knew.
She laughed and agreed we were alike in that respect.
“I’ll shut up now,” I said. “I’ll go write my blog post.”
She suggested I write about how I never shut up. Since I don’t have much else going on today, I did.
I was going to end it just then. See what I would be doing? I say I never shut up, then I shut up. Well, we all know that’s just not me.
A short time later, I saw Joanie talking to another co-worker. Naturally, I asked, “Joanie, don’t you ever stop talking?”
Later yet, I was working away at my machine, and Joanie was doing something nearby. Somehow, something wasn’t right. Finally, I called her over: “Psst, Joanie! Joanie! Come here, Joanie?”
“Did you notice neither one of us is talking?”
We corrected that deficiency right away.
OK, for anybody else who works in my place of employment, especially any bosses (oh yeah, like they read my blog, but just in case): WE ALSO GOT OUR WORK DONE!
