“Talking” with a friend on chat last night, I mentioned that, despite how I appear online, I am rather quiet and reserved in-person. (Ethic also seems to be the strong silent type, so you can imagine that our occasional get-togethers look like The Adventures of Dour and Taciturn.) You may have noticed a bit of logorrhea here, too.
It later struck me: given the ebb and flow of chat, it amounts to maybe a sentence or two per minute. You might read 1000 words from me here, but that is 1000 words per day. Even when I am being chatty, it is mostly silence.
