Do you ever read something and reply in your head? I do this all the time, especially with my email. And then I get emails saying, did you get my email? Why didn’t you write back. And honestly, I thought I did. I formulated the whole reply, it just never made it to the keyboard. Same with comments here on my blog. I noticed Michelle said, in the LKH post, that she’d waited and waited for someone to comment on her comment. And I’m thinking to myself- I did that, didn’t I? I remember thinking about what she wrote and responding. Apparently in my head.
But it doesn’t just happen on the computer, it also happens with Josh. He’ll start a conversation with me and I’ll happily carry it on- without ever saying a word. And then five minutes later I’ll say something apparently out of context- but it makes sense to me because I’ve been following the conversation 😉 It drives Josh nuts when I don’t respond to him. But I am, I really am!
I think it’s a side-effect of being home with just the baby to talk to. I get used to just thinking, not actually saying it aloud or responding. I need to work on that!
Sorry Michelle- I’ll do better next time, I promise 😉
