no shortage of words
After interviewing a male patient this afternoon, I called to give report to our female doctor. I told her I felt that the interview didn't go as well as I would have liked, and when she asked why, I tried to identify a few reasons besides the odd cramped space we were in. "... well he just talked like a man," I finally figured out. "They" i.e. some sources, say that women speak three times as much as a man, that is, we use three times as many words! I notice that I may write three times as many words, also, and many are totally unnecessary. I am such a girl.
