I frequently say lots of very strange things that seem unrelated to the conversation at hand. That’s because I’m running a quite detailed conversation in my head at the same time. I’ll try different comments and responses, and evaluate the expected responses based on relevancy and humor.
The problem comes when I continue the internal conversation at that point, and then speak one of my quips. I may have gone 5 minutes ahead into a conversation. I get lots of bewildered looks. Sorry!
Anyway, I find myself suffering a bit from the same thing with posting entries to this site; I’ll think them through, considering what point I’m trying to get across, and (in my head) post it to the site. The issue is I never actually do… So, don’t be too worried if I reference something I talked about earlier — I’m just crazy.
