Blake is a good communicator

Last night, Blake and I were talking in bed. He told me that he had sent me an email with a link to an article that he was excited for me to read. I asked him what it was about and this is how he explained it:

"This researcher has done a study about little kids learning words after they are two... UP TO 2,000!"

That's it folks. Those are the exact words Blake used. Of course, my response was, "2,000 what?"

This is just one of the many examples of how Blake gets so excited to tell me something that he sometimes forgets to speak in sentences that I understand. Other times he just blurts some random thought out and I'm forced to ask a million questions to figure out what he's trying to say. Luckily, since I know him pretty well, it doesn't take me too long to put together the missing pieces and we both usually end up laughing at how once again, he hasn't made any sense at all.

I guess he has been doing this since he was little. It must be that his lips can't keep up with his hyper mind.

Good thing he doesn't make a living by communicating with others!

Oh my goodness, this is SO much like Art. He does this to me all the time. The scary thing is, I think he is rubbing off on me and I am starting to do it to him. Maybe it's one of the "married" things!

Okay, so Wade does the exact same thing ALL the time!!

He will blurt out something random like "I can't believe that they went there."

Meanwhile I have no idea who "they" is and where "there" is. I tease him about it constantly. Maybe it has something to do with that extra X chromosome that men have!?!

Hm. I don't know if it's a guy thing. I tend to talk without explaining myself sometimes. I can write clearly, though. As long as people can find at least one way of communicating well, I think that's all that matters . . .

Sorry, I meant to say Y chromosome in my bad! I'll blame it on pregnancy!!!

I have been accused of not including enough information in my speaking, as well.
