Grand Canyon, Arizona
Rich flew to Boise yesterday morning to look at some houses and property.
We’re trying to figure out what to do with the rest of our lives…
Anyway, we’re not the best of communicators over the phone because Rich can’t hear and I’m afraid of phones.
For some reason we can’t seem to decipher when the other one is finished speaking so we interrupt each other constantly.
We don’t mean to; it just happens because we’ve never really had to develop phone skills with one another. And it’s even worse now because we’re together virtually ALL of the time.
So, while he’s in Boise for a few days, we’re trying something new to help us communicate better and quit interrupting each other.
We’re using military terms to indicate that we’re done talking.
“Roger That” means “I understand” or “I hear you.”
“Over” means “I’m done talking for a bit.” “Over and Out” means “I’m done talking forever.”
Giggles… We’re actually not using those exact military terms.
But I am saying, “IT’S MY TURN.”
And, “OK, NOW YOU TALK”.
And it’s helping!
We haven’t hung up on each other once. 🙂
