How can such an â€˜openâ€™ person be so
closed? I ask myself this question every once in awhile, when I
occasionally have the realization that I keep a lot of things to
myself. I will strike up a conversation with a person in a checkout
line at the grocery and tell her that I have 8 nieces and nephews and
that practically everyone I know is pregnant, and that Iâ€™m from
Ohioâ€¦yada yada yada. Things like that. But iâ€™ve noticed that for things
that I probably should talk to someone aboutâ€¦. I donâ€™t. Lips sealed.
Bottle cap tight. It makes me think that I do a lot of talking about
absolutely nothing, and very little talking about actual important
things. Not that bragging about my nieces and nephews isnâ€™t important.
Just all the other stuff.
â€˜how ya doing?â€™â€¦..goodâ€¦..you?â€¦..fineâ€¦â€¦whatâ€™s newâ€¦â€¦not muchâ€¦â€¦.go
bucksâ€¦â€¦ohâ€¦..ioâ€¦..did you watch that show? â€¦â€¦yeah, pretty funnyâ€¦â€¦â€¦ see
ya laterâ€¦ bye
And of course, since people actually read this, I have to present
anything of a sensitive or revealing nature with such ambiguity that no
one will have a clue what I mean. But maybe iâ€™ll try sometime soon. If
I could just make up my mind on what I want this blog to look like. But
thatâ€™s a whole different waste of time.
