UBC day 3 - Yap...Yap...Yapp....!!

There are people who talk and then, there are people who TALK. 

I obviously belong to the second category! It does not matter whether you are a known person or a stranger, whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, or whether you even want to talk in the first place! Nothing can stop me from from chewing your brains off with my incessant chatter! Sometimes I feel, the term, 'nineteen to a dozen' was coined just for me!

No new place is new enough for me to keep my mouth shut. And no person is new enough for me not to begin talking to them. I can be at ease anywhere, with anyone. My mom says, I have the ability to make walls talk, if there's no living soul around! I often wondered if being this chatty was a disorder. I wondered why I have this urge to keep conversing?  For quite sometime I thought it was normal to be able to converse. But many stiff upper lips and polite smiles later I realised, that it wasn't!

I'm definitely not boring and don't talk nonsensical or hurtful things, but I always manage to find something in common and starting a conversation is never a difficult job for me. There are friends who've told me they are usually introverts and are amazed at how they could converse so much whilst with me. There are friends who wait for me to turn up at parties. It great to hear these things, but at the same time, I also wish I'd learn to tone down a little bit.

Hubby dearest once secretly recorded my conversation with our friends and later played it back to me. I was horrified, to say the least! Though it was an engaging conversation, I was yapping away like there'd be no tomorrow! I am sometimes amazed at the sheer amount of things I speak!

Blogging has definitely helped me channel all that I want to say. I wouldn't say I talk less now, but yes, it is way lesser than it used to be!

  4. I think it is a gift, this being able to get out of your comfort zone and talk to a stranger, being able to talk to introverts and get them to open up to you. People may tell you that you talk too much and that you chew people's brains off. Don't worry about them. They are at a loss for words.
    I used to be like you once. I think age has mellowed me down.
    I'd love to chat with you and see if I've still got the old ability to talk "nineteen to the dozen."

  6. Ah!! am a yapper myself but I usually open my mouth in front of strangers once I have tested the waters and refrain from giving way when I feel...too much is not required. Nice enjoyable post!

  7. Same pinch!!! And you have to see my brother... exactly opposite of me. He doesn't speak at all, and when asked why he is silent, he would go on about how his sister did not give him a chance to talk and all those things :P :D

  8. That's some talent, I must say :) I was an extrovert but as I changed with life, somehow I became this extrovert by very selective choice and otherwise an introvert. Sometimes, I miss being a talkative person.

    Btw, You have an awesome blog. I dug your archives on one lazy day and I loved them :)

    Until later,
    Keirthana :)

  13. Oh you and I have something in talking because I am the original Chatty Kathy once you get me going.. Course my chatter is peppered with laughter especially if I am nervous. Other times I can be so quiet. I enjoyed getting this glimpse of you.

  17. I would probably like to change your first sentence like this: there are people who talk and there are people who communicate. You are from the second group. To talk anything is easy but to communicate is difficult as the listener should get interested in you to listen. That's why your friends wait for you at the parties. So, clap clap! you are truly a good communicator.

  18. That's quite interesting read. I envy those who start talking at the drop of a hat. For, am a hopeless introvert blinking away even from family members who want to chat with me.
