When we left the arena after JJ's final hockey game, for the first time, I noticed that I could see the townhall steeple from the parking lot. (This first time sighting was at least partially explained by the fact that you can't see the steeple from all angles and does not man that I am totally clueless ... although perhaps I am, at least according to legions.)
So I said, "Oh there's the townhall steeple. I've never noticed that before."
Then Sue said, "Oh there's the townhall steeple. I've never noticed that before."
It's not that Sue is dumb. It's just that she hadn't heard me.
She hadn't heard me because I hadn't said it. Out loud, I mean.
Nope. I said it to myself.
Whereas, Sue said it to the world.
This is one example of the difference between introverts and extroverts.
It has happened before.
Like the time we were out walking, and I saw a body by the sidewalk. I quickly realized that the man was resting from the construction work that was going on nearby in the same lot.
No sooner had I processed the above — internally, of course — than Sue verbalized the very same thing.
Still waters run deep. Don't underestimate what goes on in an introvert's brain.
