Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to stop talking all together. Animals manage to use noise just as a greeting, a warning, a mating call... I'm sure that's all we used speech for in the stone age. Why this need to tell each other everything? To explain everything? Could we function through body language alone? It can be done in monastries so it's definitely possible. But at some point I'm sure we'd just replace speech with writing. I'm no different. 100 words has given me this horrible desire to put everything in writing. Everything.
