When we went on our girl’s beach weekend last month, we saw the movie The Wolf Of Wall Street, which clocks in at a little over three hours. This running time made one of the women a few rows in front of us have to run to the ladies room about two hours into the movie. When she returned to her seat, her friend took that opportunity to fill her in on what she had missed.
At such full volume that those of us who had not missed the last five minutes of the movie missed the next five minutes because all we could hear was this woman TALKING AT FULL VOLUME.
Almost as if she was truly incapable of whispering.
It got us all talking after the movie about whispering versus yelling.
Like what if for three straight months, we could only do one or the other, no matter where we were or what we were doing.
At the grocery store with the cashier asking us if we found everything we needed.
You are either yelling at her or whispering so quietly she can’t hear you.
With your kids calling them to dinner.
Good luck with three months of whispering those requests.
Or maybe it would be a blessing in disguise because you would train their ears to really pay attention to mommy talking.
Basically, think about and apply it to your own life and then let us know what you think. We know our answer, by the way.
Since our natural speaking voice is already on the loud side, whispering is not an option for us. Guess we will just have to skip all trips to the movies and the library for the next three months! What about you, Dose Peeps? Would you rather only be able to whisper or only be able to yell?
