Talking to yourself

Post by mysty »

We were in our old cafe this morning, where we used to know most of the regulars.
One man who was there probably in his mid sixties was talking to himself and definitely not on a phone.
Four years ago he was not doing that.
My dad did that in his fifties.
Do you think there is an age that kicks in and will it come to all of us?

I used to notice a lot of women talking to themselves in Carrefour. In between consulting their lists.
I talk to myself in my mind, but not aloud (?)
As someone said "Sometimes I sit and think. And sometimes I just sit".

It's not just a thing for people of age.

Don't you remember running down the street with your arms outstretched horizontal surrounded by Messerschmitt Bf 109s talking to fighter command or your wing man?
OR
Stepping up to take a late penalty, at the cup final, all the while giving the match commentators account?

Well, maybe not you feminine types. :?

No, but I could have been heard encouraging my imaginary pony to jump the course of broom stick show jumps in the garden! :D
