Overheard in the kitchen...

I went out back to re-set the grape tomato plant against its improvised stake this morning and noticed the beginnings of a couple of 'maters. Hmmm. Time for a tomato cage.

Back into the kitchen where I had last seen my roomie, I was yelling "Hey, the next time we go to Lowe's, we need to..."

No RobertaX in the kitchen. Or dining room.

"...talk real loudly to ourselves so people will think we're crazy and not mess with us!"

Get a Bluetooth headset. Well worth the cost, just so people don't look at you funny.

Sometimes, I don't even turn mine on.

at least you were at home - I do this in public. I think I might scare people in the grocery store.

I talk to myself all the time, I suspect that's a relic of living alone save for two dogs. Once you establish a habit like that, though, it tends to leak out of the house, and so I... as I said, I talk to myself all the time.

Major upside: people collecting signatures on petitions actually step away when I pass by. But once I make old grouch's poem part of my outer/inner monologue, they'll throw themselves under the tables.

Was Roberta at least in the house when you were doing this?

If so, I think you'd safely avoid the "nutcase" label you're fearing.

rickn8or has plumped me. I wear my headset all the time, for that simple reason. For I do and truly talk to myself, all the damn time, often using words and phrases like "plasma ram", "halide-ion pulse" and "sequential detonation"

Yeah,hoo. Ha.

The eggs have gained oxygen.
