… how close you are to completing your allotment of words for the day? LOL!
You may have heard it said that, in general, women tend to use about twice as many words per day as men, although I’ve certainly encountered some very quiet women as well as some extremely talkative men.
My poor DH has had two, extremely draining, back-to-back, very verbally intensive work days that included his emceeing a long day of public events yesterday and then overseeing a Sunday service, singing, preaching a sermon, greeting an entire congregation, and overseeing an almost three-hour-long church business meeting today, so he has obviously had his fill of talking for the weekend, haha.
I, of course, feigned offense at his implication that I — his dear, lovely wife, who doesn’t get to spend nearly enough time with him — talk too much, and jokingly replied: “I only have five more words for you: You … are a dead man.” LOL
He thought that was pretty funny, and I told him that it was worthy of a post on weddingbee, haha.
So, this prompted me to wonder: Do you ever find that you and your DH, FI, or SO have a discrepancy in how much talking you each tend to do in your relationship?
Does one, or both, of your jobs require a lot of verbal communication that leaves one or both of you drained and “all talked out” and less likely to want to spend time talking when you’re together?
