** Why do you keep explaining things to me?
++ Hummm.. Probably so you could, err, Understand?
** Do you think I am stupid?
++ No! Surely not.
** Do you think I don’t know stuff? That I am an ignorant person?
++ No! You should not feel like that!
** Maybe because you explain rather than converse, discuss, ask?
++ Semantics. What is the difference.
** Question marks and irrelevant rhetorical questions you ask yourself, for starters.
++ You are being illogical. Calm down.
** What exactly comes into the range of logicality in what I have just said? If you can not think of other than a semantic difference between ways of listening to each other and you telling me your opinion masquerading as “how things are”?
++ Why do you have to make things so complicated? What are you on about?!?
** Lets try again.. Seed planting.. Why must you try to explain?
++ Otherwise, why would you ask about seed planting?
** I was trying to wonder how could we, together, plant seeds. As something to do. A together kinda thing.
++ But 1st you need to know about seed planting. Surely.
** How do you know I don’t?
++ I wasn’t sure you don’t know, that is why I told you!
** Are you saying that you didn’t know whether or not I have a clue about seeding and planting, so you had to explain things, just in case?
++ No. I was telling you what I know. That isn’t explaining. That’s sharing.
** What scent flew into your thoughts to indicate that what you happened to know is actually relevant?
++ Memories of freshly picked flowers after gardening lessons in school.
** Bravo. Yes.. Forgot about that. How cruel is my fickle memory, hey? You also studied history – does it make you an expert, or an historian?
++ I think I know history better than someone who did not learn it in school.
** If school classes are your way of figuring out knowledge levels, perhaps you forgot to think.
++ No need to nuke me with nasties just because we disagree.
** You went to school 20 years ago.. School level is never anywhere like cutting edge..
++ Well.. I read some books about gardening. You know I want to give more time for our garden.
** Yes.. I know. Why I got some seeds for us..
++ So.. You agree with me after all!
** Maybe only in your mind.
++ How else can I understand this?
** Look. Simple.. I got different types of seeds for various plants and seasons, because I don’t understand something?
++ Ofcourse! I still love you. But if you knew something about seeds, you would not buy them in the way you did.
** Oh really? “Still love” me. Sounds like Stale Love.
++ Nothing I ever say feels right for you. What have I done to justify this relentlessly punishing attitude?
** I was thinking we, together, could plan and plant in our new garden together. As something nice for us to do, you know. I was un-sure when we’d begin and how, so got a variety of options. However – that comes as an ignorant thing to do?!
++ Why didn’t you explain it 1st?
** Hummmm… And 3 weeks ago, when we were choosing curtains; was it absolutely crucial to explain the differences between green, and brown colours on fabrics?
++ Did you know of all these psychological studies?
** You could have just said that greenness from fabrics, makes You feel sadness. At least then I might have a better memory of what you actually said!
++ What’s wrong with you? Why so negative?
** How about constantly explaining to me about food, and the weather, my relationship with friends…
++ I am just trying to help!
** Who? Yourself?
