When my son was in nursery school, before he was diagnosed with ADHD, he presented as an overactive, nonstop talking (at home only) child. Don’t know where we picked up the term “motormouth” but that is how we made reference to our son (sometimes in conversation).
To be fair . . . that same identifier applies to me. My wife and I just came back from having dinner with a couple of new friends. After we parted with the other couple, my wife told me, in no uncertain terms, that I had pretty much monopolized the table conversation. In retrospect, I agree 100%. But during dinner I was pretty much non-stop. Yes, I listened when others talked but then, without much pause turned the discussion back to “my” topics. Though my motor was not going at top speed . . . it hardly stopped to cool down. In one way I knew that I was taking center stage . . . and not that I didn’t care, but I didn’t pay attention (or didn’t want to).
Am I the only one? (I think not . . . )!
Would like to hear from others . . .
