not being able to talk gives you a strange perspective. i wouldn't say it makes you a better listener...just sad that you can't join in the conversation..at least not with ease. when talking becomes hard work, you get choosier about what you say. my roomate came up to me asking what new menu items i think she should include at her restaurant..."i can't talk" i mouthed back. i can talk minimally, but that is just not the sort of thing i feel like wasting my breath on. also, my dog doesn't listen quite like she used to.
