finish the thought

My advisor got on my case today about finishing my sentences. Granted, today I’m tired, which makes the problem worse than usual, but this isn’t something that is only happening today. When I was a kid, I was well socialized. I had school and a big family. I was shy, but I could usually express myself. Recently (as in the last 2 to 3 years) I’ve noticed that most of my time is spent either inside my head or talking to Bear, Lin or my brother.

Bear and Linda know me well enough that it’s like living in my head. I can speak half a sentence and not even notice I didn’t finish. Carl at least makes me stretch a bit because he thinks and behaves and acts so differently from me. I’ve known him for so very long, but familiarity in his case did not lead to a mind meld like I have going with Lin and Bear. That’s besides the point. God, I’m really not finishing my thoughts am I?

My point is that I need socialization. It’s gotten way too bad if my advisor is calling me on it.
