And there is no way she can be quiet for more than 45 seconds. No way at all.







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

You're a lucky man. It means she loves you.

Ha! I expected a nice story about enjoying simple, quiet time with the wife....guess not. Wink

Many a man has complained that the wife unit should have come with a mute button.

Maybe it was the phase of the moon?

The 4 of us went out to eat last eve & the same was going on here. I just ate, offered a word or 2, and seeing if she would slow down, never happened.

When we got home I found some lawn to mow. The hum of the Cub Cadet was more comforting.

My wife is the opposite, we take several 3-mile / 45 minute walks a week.

Unless there is something on her mind that she wants to discuss, she'll easily go 20 minutes without saying a word.

I don't suppose she has a less loquacious sister? Razz

Haha, she does have an older sister, unfortunately the sister is quite bossy, and much more talkative. Smile

Wife and I can sit on the deck together, take a long drive together, and it's like I'm alone. She will not miss a idle moment to be face down in her phone.
Truth is doesn't bother me like it used to. After 36 years of marriage I think we have said about all there is to say. Smile

What does bother me is when she starts to recite to me all the postings she finds on Facebook of people I really don't know nor care what their review is of some movie they went to the previous night or how good the food was at the local Mexican place in which I have eaten everything on the menu myself. I have told her this and it has since stopped.

She is a phone/social media addict. She is not alone by any means. I always make it a point when I am in any public place and look around to see how many people are face down in their phones. It's probably 50% at any given time.

My wife and I often joke about this subject. We can sit in the same room reading or watching TV for hours and only say a few things to each other. We love going places together and being with each other, but just don't have that much to say. Smile

Yeah, my wife is on the quiet side. If she has something to say, she says it, but very little idle chatter.

My wife's last few months before retiring as an elementary teacher, she was extra wound up and anxious as her career she loved wound down. One morning before school, I'm half asleep and she tells a story of something dramatic that happened at school. It was like the story that just wouldn't end. Maybe she was a little yipped up on coffee and endorphins, the speed of the chatter was incredible. I tried as best I could to remain engaged, but I likely had a bit of "will this ever end?" on my face.

My level of engagement was just enough for her to not get mad at me for not paying attention and eventually finished the story without me asking if it was time for her to go.

As a man of few words, I was amazed as I often am, at her vocal endurance. I told her that one story was likely the amount of words I'd use for several days.

Some women go by the theory that as long as their mouth is moving, they can never die. I once had a very talkative next door neighbor. My father-in-law at the time was a good old country boy, who got cornered by her in the yard. When he finally escaped and made it inside, his comment was, "Lordy! I believe that woman was vaccinated with a phonograph needle ."
