kaolin fire presents :: thoughts :: speaking plainly


2000::Sep::10

It's not so much that I can't speak plainly, it's just that I have a tendency to be... interesting. This takes no conscious effort -- if it took conscious effort than I'd be much better at not doing it when it was considered inappropriate (those few times when I can, at least in retrospect, tell that if I'd stopped and thought about it sarcasm would have been inappropriate, given the people...) or was in some other way less than useful.

Sarcasm isn't the only way I don't speak plainly. In fact, it's the simpler (in my opinion) for other people to overcome and interpret (at least when they can tell that a sentence I speak/write is dripping with sarcasm. Harder is that I tend to convey a minimal amount of information to get an idea across. I'm not trying to be cryptic, mind you, and I'm decidedly not always successful (or I wouldn't have the situations that give me the thoughts that give me this rant)... but... I like to be concise. (some people I know would laugh at that, I think... I don't always give information in the order that they would like).
