I'm an eloquent and thorough individual (not to be confused with Thoreau, I'm less than poetic). My emails are well thought out and convey the entirety of my thought process. I've never been accused of rambling, except for those 20 or so times, but I digress (code word that means...rambling)
Some people I have worked with in the past have had the attention span of a gnat. Worse, an ADHD suffering gnat. An ADHD suffering gnat on caffeine at a squirrel convention. If this blog post were an email, their attention would have stopped at about "all of them." These are the people that you learn early on you could call
shirley a panty wasted crybaby with a dirty diaper (or worse if you can imagine it) so long as you do it 2/3 of the way into a long email.
Some would call blogging a "creative outlet" but for me as it is my inner-monologue's field trip to the museum of life. Sure, it's a 2 hour traffic laden field trip on a bus filled with 27 second graders to an art museum with no gift shop, in the rain.
Here I go off on a
tangent really skinny branch... I live near the District of Columbia, Washington, the Nation's Capitol, the armpit of United States politics...but the Mecca for all things Smithsonian. You want Air and Space, American History, Natural History, American Art, American Indian, African Art...Yes, we have that. Unfortunately... Growing up here was to be subjected to all of them, with assignments to research. Air and Space was cool, but that was often the dessert if all 27 of us were well behaved at the National Natural Historical Museum of Fru-Fru Skidoo... Unlikely.
And we're back... Blogging... Emailing.... I am sure in this age of text-speak where u no y idk nething, it is hard to imagine a thorough electronic communication, but I am old after all.
So are you the type to write the bare minimum communications are you the literate email novelette writer?
