Parrot Talk

We speak to get outside of our own heads. I don’t think it particularly matters if you don’t always have an audience.

He gave of himself, and I fear I failed to give back. I strove to be polite and unobtrusive and if not intelligent then at least not stupid. I fear I failed to let him know me, because I did not know myself.
