Iíve never quite understood the familyís propensity for talking right over each other, or for interrupting someone elseís conversation. I find it quite rude, and itís not as though it is a large family. I started to laugh, though, when one of the girls pushed back when her grandmother barged into the conversation with a totally different topic: why worry about that now, at this point, I thought, when youíve just done the same thing twice in the last half hour? It seems like such insular behaviour, as though they never had to interact with the larger world of society.
