I had a relationship where my failure to respond quickly enough meant I was bored/disinterested/not paying attention. So I learned to say whatever came to the top of my head as soon as possible.

Husband & retiree. Developer, tech writer, & IT geek. I fill what’s empty, empty what’s full, and scratch where it itches. Occasionally do weird & goofy things.
