discretion? valor?

I've got to learn to stop commenting on places where people don't know me, I guess. I used to have some talent for communication which has apparently deserted me, since I doubt the people who have misunderstood me in these incidents have done so willfully or with malice aforethought. It's not even usually a huge misunderstanding, just a fairly wrenching or fundamental one. I am a native speaker of English, after all, but suddenly people seem to be hearing xyz when I've said abc.

O, by all the firmament, I wonder if this is what aphasia looks like from the inside. Great, coming to that early would just be the frosting on the cake. Thank the stars this genome isn't going any further.
