I'll be honest. Sometimes, when Julie goes off on one of her verbal rambles, I tend to tune out. This is especially true if I'm trying to read.
What I didn't realise, though, is that I'm not alone in this. Apparently, Julie also tends to pay very little attention to what she is saying...
Now, the keen-minded among you will realise that this means that a simple (but possibly foolhardy) application of logic will tell you that someone else may well be paying attention. This is true. Mind you, that other person may also be Julie.
