My husband probably agrees with George Thorogood on occasion, especially when it comes to asking (not nagging – at least in my opinion) him to do something. My take on that? “Well honey, if you had done it when you promised to, there would be no need to remind you of it.” Or, “if you had answered me the first time, then I wouldn’t have to repeat the question”. See? It’s his own fault! 😉 As for the rest, I’m not the garrulous type, and gossip? Never! Your secrets are safe with me. Busybodies must have boring or unhappy lives, don’t you think? That would explain the Schadenfreude (a German word with no direct English translation, meaning to take pleasure in others’ misfortunes), they often exhibit.
“GARRULOUS” stems from the Latin “garrulus” (talkative); verb “garrio” (I chatter)
Do you talk too much?
Looking forward to your comments!
