Blah Blah Blah..

Had a conversation with my colleague today.. And it reminded me of an incident last week..
There I was.. At a bus stop near my home.. Waiting for my bus to head to office when this old couple.. Probably in their 50s came along..
The lady was talking.. Nothing unusual..
Except that she talked....


and talked....



and talked...




and talked...

Until all the man did was nod with the almost synchronised replies of.. ya.. umm.. ah.. (repeat)...

For a cool I think 5 minutes at least.. She was talking.. All the way!..
5 minutes of MONOLOGUE.. It's amazing!!.. Not easy!!..

That's not all... Sensing no response.. Or at least no significant responses.. She started using her finger to poke at him as she continued mumbling away.. So all in, I would think took a cool 10 minutes!.. (I didn't time though.. Just a guesstimate)
10 minutes of talking.. It MUST be a record of sorts.. 10 minutes of monologue!

And gals wonder.. Why guys don't listen?..
Because there's tooooooooooooo much to process if we listened to everything..=P
