If noone hears you, are you really talking?

I hope you are staying safe and sane as we find ourselves mid-way through week 5,347 of quarantine. In the beginning, I was loving it, hell I’m still loving it. Not because anything has really changed with my life or schedule, but because BW’s has. All of a sudden, he’s here all the time. And I’m like, “YAY!”


As someone who spends her days alone most times, this has been fun for me. But, I’m pretty sure BW is ready to have real people back in his life again. And by real people, I mean co-workers, clients, and strangers. Or what he refers to as people who actually listen to him. Something he claims that I don’t do.


In his defense, most times I’ve got my face buried in my iPhone, MacBook, Kindle, iMac, or iPad. That list makes me sound like an Apple whore. Shit, maybe I am, but don’t judge, I like how they work and talk to each other. It makes my life easier.


Anyway, I digress. My point being that BW thinks I don’t listen to him. And that the more time we spend together, the less I listen. Well, yeah, duh. If we are spending more hours together in the day, then comparatively there will be more hours I don’t pay attention. Right?


So, my question to you is, do you think you listen less to your significant other, the longer (time) you spend with them? If not you’re SO, then your BFF or someone you spend a lot of time with.
