Silence is Golden

Julie had to go to Oklahoma City on Saturday to get some supplies for Vacation Bible School and she invited Mom and me to go along. This was a quick trip. We left at 9:30 and returned at 2:30. And it takes an hour and a half to get there...which means we were actually only there for two hours! We went to six stores and a restaurant in that time. We're quick shoppers! And quiet travelers. And general weirdos, but you already knew that.

On the way home, we rode in silence for a full thirty minutes. No one was giving anyone else the silent treatment, we just didn't have anything to say. Julie was driving, Mom was reading a book, and I was sitting there watching the clock. Julie broke the silence when Mom put down her book and Julie asked her if she liked it. After that, we rode silently for another ten or fifteen minutes and Julie broke the silence again when her phone rang.

Does anyone else do this? I'm pretty sure it's not normal.

There are allot of people out there who can't stand silence so they must be speaking. I can totally be with someone and not speak.
