Efficiency is my middle name according to my sister. She said this when I was calling her with my cell phone while biking to the store. Something I have often done in the past, getting my calls done while biking to work or back, or to the grocery store or whatever! Thinking about this made something fall into place for me. I have an inner resistance to skyping with people, but didn't know why. Well efficiency is the reason! Because, when I skype, I can't do anything but sit in front of the computer and talk. While I could be doing dishes, hanging up laundry or clearing up rooms. Things I regularly do when talking on the phone. I don't even like sitting down in real life and talking with people, I'd rather be doing something and talking at the same time. Some of my best conversations have been while scrubbing toilets, doing laundry or doing dishes (or walking, or biking, or shopping....) .Pretty aweful hey? I don't feel the same about IMing with somebody, because then I can chat with more than one person, write a letter, google or do numerous other things while chatting back and forth. Yes, I'm afraid efficiency is indeed my middle name, much to the detriment of my social contacts sometimes......
