I’m not generally chatty. I’m not a loud attention seeker either. I find social gatherings with large groups of people unnerving, however when I am passionate about a subject, if I have a strong opinion about something, I have a tendency to over communicate.
I pontificate using examples ranging from real life experiences to exaggerated tales of possible scenarios and outcomes. If I can’t pull you in with my sesquipedalian skills, I’ll go to the other extreme and communicate solely using monosyllabic grunting, or I might possibly do an interpretive dance, or even emit smells to get my point across.
I will continue in this vain, pressing my point in every possible manner while looking deep into the soul of my target audience until I see a flash of light, a flicker of understanding in your eyes. Nothing is inexpressible. You don’t have to agree with me for me to be satisfied, you only have to understand my thought on the subject. Once I know I’ve made my point, I again become the taciturn closed off individual who has other things to do, besides chit chat, because really sometimes I’ve just had my fill of people.
For this reason, I feel that I’ve communicated everything to date that I’ve wanted to communicate to each of my spawn, my family friends, acquaintances, every pet I’ve ever had, my books, and my empty closet. I’ve fully expressed myself today, so we’ll talk tomorrow, because now I am off to work, and I have a headache.
The Daily Post, November 23, 2015, Daily Prompt: Literate for a Day~ Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/literate-today/”>Literate for a Day</a>
