It's amazing to hear people's voices for the first time when you already know them electronically.
This week, I got to talk to two such people and the difference couldn't have been starker. They were both fun, quirky, interesting emailers... but their actual personalities were night and day.
Her voice was richer, fuller and much more polished than I had imagined. Everything sounded very professional and thoughtful. I was impressed not only by her voice, but her wit and intelligence. (Truer words have never been spoken by someone: "Trees don't naturally move on their own." If you think about it, it's quite profound as we run around potting/repotting and decorating with nature).
Very disjointed. Paused. Checked to see that I was following. But never said anything of value. Paused some more. Even mid sentence. Much less interesting. I Wonder. How much time she spent. Reviewing emails before sending. Drove me crazy. Short drive. Short sentences. Short friendship.
