I’ve always been a chatterbox since I guess when I started talking,that is 30 years and 3 months ago! Any way,so this habit just didn’t fade away with time and age,in fact it just kept growing with me,steadily.
In school all my report cards,apart from those As and B+s,always got the remark from the teacher ‘she is very talkative’! Every parents-teacher meeting had my parents come out with a shake of head after listening to the teachers praise for me on everything except ‘maintaining silence in the class’!
So there, I was labelled talkative in school,just kind of above certificate 🙂
Then came college and ‘girl friends’ age. In college with so much happening in life and new aspects being added like bunking college,having boy friends and going to movies in large groups etc,there ought to be a lot of talking,no?
So,talking continued and at this stage on phones too!
Then I landed up in job and what profession did I choose? Being an HR professional it required a lot of talking to people in terms of counselling,motivational speeches,meetings and of course the usual chitter-chatter was to be done too 🙂
So,my job also stood by me and never took my talking away 🙂 On this note,I wonder what if I was not into HR [corporate] world and doing something somewhere? Like in the movie Eat,Pray & Love where you had to keep silence for a week’s time? Gosh,just cannot imagine that 😛 My family says that I might as well live without food [which by the way isn’t true at all ;)] but I can’t survive without talking,ha!
Sometime back one of our family friends who is every close to us gave me another khitab on this talkative habit. He called me a ‘word document’ while Husby is ‘power point’. And explained it like this: In word document there are plenty of words forming long sentences whereas in MS Power Point the slides carry only pointers and no BIG explanations 🙂 hahah that was in a casual funny way but I liked that. So,yes I’m a word document 🙂 which compliments the husby very well !
And then this blog happened. And there is no stopping you on your blog,is it? You can type plenty of words and still no one would question you,right? I wonder if my long posts ever bother any of my readers. If they just scroll on the post and on finding a longish one just click the cross on the right corner of the window 🙂

Any way, but whatever it is the talking is not going to stop,it seems. Because this is something I love from the bottom of my heart and it comes from within. I don’t have to plan a speech or rehearse a conversation when I’m going to meet someone for the first time. It’s just plain and simple for me to start a conversation and continue it till eternity,of course unless the other person doesn’t get up and starts walking away from me 😉
I remember the other day when I was chatting with our peppy,she asked me what’s my morning time routine is like and when can she call me. To which [later I thought] I could have just given her time frame and ho gaya. But no, I recall I replied in 20 lines to this small question of hers 🙂 And then I was only laughing at my enthusiasm of typing so much,leave alone talking 🙂
So far this talking habit has got me lot of friends and thankfully none of them got bored of me or at least no one said so to me ! Honestly,I love talking and that’s what I’m!
But I hope some day I don’t turn out to something like this….*hawww*
