Communication: one of the meanings is “to transmit or reveal a feeling or thought by speech, writing, or gesture so that it is clearly understood”
Clearly that doesn’t”t happen all the time when I am involved. I guess I jumped the gun and read in my mind the end of his sentence. Bad idea.
So I remain ignorant of the actual statement he was in the process of stating.
And you might be able to tell that I don’t feel too good about it all.
Can one blame these kinds of miscommunications on male hormones? ‘Cause I’m not having PMS! I suppose that would be a lame excuse.
In any case, we have lived together long enough to know we had better make up and move on. And reading the compline together each night sort of forces us to do that. Especially the part where we confess “Almighty God, my heavenly Father: I have sinned against you, through my own fault, in thought, and word, and deed, in what I havedone and what I have left undone.” I guess those could just be rote words but that is not where I want to go.
