Talk It Out

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

I noticed something very interesting as I sat out on my porch last night.  As couples were out on their evening walk, some had their pups on a leash, a few were wearing flip-flops, a couple were speed walking but the one thing they all had in common?

Wives doing all the talking.

talk too much

I mean, really talking!  I don't think I heard anything more than a grunt or ugh-huh from any one of the men walking by.  I know it sounds silly to notice such a thing and I surely wasn't looking for it but what about it?  Ladies?

Do you do all the talking in your relationship?

I came to the conclusion that I too can be a bit chatty.  Not all the time, but I can go on and on about stuff that I'm almost sure my hubby could care less about.  However, like the good fella's I saw out walking with their wives…..he indulges me.  He listens (at least some of the time) gives appropriate nods here and there and when something catches his fancy, chimes in as if he's really into the one-sided conversation.

she talks

I love that about him.

Here's the deal.  Women are full of words (usually).  We think of all sorts of important things to tell our men when we're not with them.  Sometimes, we sit on good stuff so long it feels like it's going to burst out of us.  So, when we see our true love….talking is at the top of our to-do list.  The trouble with that is most husband's have talked out all their words during their busy day and are ready for some brain incubation.

quiet man

Perhaps, this is why men love to get outside and DO something physical.  My hubby says he solves all sorts of problems in his head while he's mowing the yard.  He gets some of his greatest praying done as well.  Not talking has its perks! 

I totally get every woman passing by my house — we can't hold back!  Talking is how we love, it's how we share our hearts.  We are full of thoughts and our only way of coping is spilling them out.  There are a great number of successful women authors, don't you think?  They probably learned talking too much just didn't work so writing gave them the outlet to say what couldn't be shushed

I don't post this to be negative in any way to chatty women.  I just found it funny watching the interaction between the women versus the men.  Each lady spoke with passion, hands waving…..voice rising up high and then dropping down low.  All while hubby's hung on…quietly taking it all in.  I wondered if any of them wanted to say anything but by the looks of it, they had already figured it out ——->

She needed to TALK IT OUT!
