Todays's Every Inchie Monday word is talk. I can remember when I used to be on the phone with my friends for hours talking, giggling and sometimes saying nothing. I also remember being with my friends in person and talking. One of the things I notice now is how a group of friends can be together and they are all texting someone. You can have a room full of people and about 3 out of 5 will be using their phone for something rather than talking to each other. I have also noticed how people no longer know how to talk to others. It's not what you say, but how you say it. People take offense over the least little things and become defensive because of the manner in which people talk to each other. This is a skill that is developed over a lifetime and like so many other skills, we are losing it.
I chose to draw a phone handset as my symbol of talk for this week.
