On Conversing and Quote a la J

J and I have very different communication styles. I think quick (or not at all) and speak quickly too. However, when I ask J something I get no response. Especially if it's an open ended question. For example:

Me: What do you want to do for dinner?
(silence. waiting. silence. me getting annoyed.)
Me: ANSWER ME!
J: I was thinking....

This really annoys me! If he asked me what I wanted for dinner I'd start spouting things out. For example:

"We haven't had pasta in awhile, do you wanna do pasta? We can add chicken or shrimp. Or do you want to grill tonight? You can grill and I'll make broasted potatos and salad."

I'm just more interactive and I easily lose patience when he's pondering and not speaking back to me. I know we just process things differently and I'm an outie and he's an innie. However he said it best yesterday.

Quote a la J:

"Sometimes I feel like I'm a 386 married to a Pentium"

This is true.

Lol, this very conversation could have been at our house too!
And CUTE puppy! J will love you forever for letting him have him, I'm sure. :)

My husband and I are the same way. He is so quiet and I am a blurt it out kind of gal! But we've been married 10 years and have known each other for 20 so we just know and appreciate our different styles of communicating. But it can still be annoying. ;) (for both of us!)

Did you ever open your Etsy store? I've been meaning to ask you and keep forgetting.
