Story of a lost journalist

Am talking too much

Filed under: Just talking — Cris @ 23:07

I had a couple of serious musings planned to be done on my blog today. But in the process of reading a Wodehouse, my thought processes have taken a major turn and am in no mood for heavy talk.

Talking about that, I actually turn my moods around a bit and my talking manner alters too whenever I come fresh out of reading a novel. It has happened before. Not always. But an Agatha Christie makes me sound like Hercule Poirot or Hastings and a Wodehouse like one of the half-cracked old gentlemen of the 50’s. So at those moments, I will be in perfect form. My speech making skills would be at its best. Problem is I always write my speeches. I do not believe in the tongue speeches. 😀

Saying that, I want to muse a little more on something I touched up on the other day. About talking. People usually like to talk about themselves. And if they find a patient listener they take advantage of it. For me, I have made rules to talk less to people who talk less. I dont know if there is any sense in that but I seldom enjoy being the lone talker in the premises. Today, however the Wodehouse character has brought my talker spirits alive and I am blabbering a lot! In fact I feel like doing a good deed to the world talking so much and in good humour. Like my character says, I wanted to spread sweetness and light around the whole world.

Tomorrow, I will probably regret this exhibition of over friendliness with the whole world. But right about now, I’d probably feel intimate with the next person I meet. “Pour your heart out to me buddy, tell me your problems, we will solve them together”, would probably be the lines I’d use.

  1. I can resonate with the part about the empathy for the characters. I used to feel that when I used to read fiction. That was eons back though.

    It is so good.. over-frienndly today followed by a dead-silent tomorrow.. :-), but what about the one who poured his/ her heart, what about his or her tomorrow!

    To have Someone to talk to is a boon.. 🙂
