The lack of voices around me today was almost scary. Of course I have one doc or another yapping things in my ear most all day long, but no kids, no TV, no one to bother me...wow. I completely get the saying "silence is deafening," just not in an uncomfortable foot-in-my-mouth situation.
Then my phone rang and my sister snapped me back to reality...of course after I jumped 10 feet when the phone scared me half to death!
The quiet is nice, but I think I do better with lots of noise and chaos all around! Good thing, I guess!
