“you don’t talk much, but when you do…”
Published 04-01-2008 on my old wordpress blog.

i’ve been trying for years to shake this sentence. at a union meeting tonight, it hits me again. it’s supposed to be a compliment, but i’ve been trying so hard ever since december 2000 to never hear it again. maybe i’m just going about it wrong. maybe i should be taking it as a compliment after all. maybe i should just focus on the fact that i can say good things every once in a while. that being an analytical and thoughtful person is a good thing instead of just vomiting up whatever comes to mind like it is the most important thing ever.

maybe i should be working right now instead of thinking about this and everything else. maybe i should move to finland.

you and i are very alike in our thought processes… i just have a bigger case of the verbal projectile vomit.
you say good things lots, just most of the time people are too busy talking about themselves to hear you.
that and i can read your mind remember…
