I think have been spending too much time alone and on my computer.
Why do I think this, you ask?
Well, I'm starting to communicate better in writing than I am orally.
I noticed this a few weeks ago while we were with friends for the weekend. I found myself stumbling over words, unable to put sentences together in a witty or even interesting manner. I found it difficult to explain what I wanted to say without sounding like a seven-year old doing a book report in front of class. What I really wanted to do was whip out my computer and type it out...
That's when I started to wonder ... am I losing my ability to communicate in person?
I do spend an enormous amount of time reading, researching, surfing, blogging, emailing, texting my daughters who only communicate by text - all of which depends on writing. Easy enough - you can always re-write what you want to say until it comes across as it was intended. (Although I am not always successful in this endeavor.)
In other words, much of my communication allows for a re-write.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
