grumbling and mumbling
Do you talk to yourself? I tend to grumble and mumble, which is a form of talking to yourself. I don't carry on conversations with me, but when I am bugged at something, I catch myself, grumbling...
Now I have caught myself, at the grocery store a few times - I guess I was loud enough for some to turn around and look at me. OH, MY GOD, I'm an old lady that mumbles to herself. It's official. (See: a wrinkled hag with age double, picking up dry sticks and mumbling to herself)
I think it is a bad habit more than anything or maybe I am delusional and am just showing the early signs of "losing it."
The husband mumbles...I hear him and it's when I have said something he doesn't want to do - he grumbles that he has to do it. I've caught him a few times, referring to me as a "nag." He forgets that I hear very well. I'm smart. If he tells me something, that I don't want to hear, I usually just say, "Okay, dear." And that's all it takes, to make him happy. I don't like to argue.
I mumble when I drive. I grumble when I hear the news. (Ok I am a whiner) I also hum in the shower and sometimes I sing really dorky songs that just come out of nowhere!
So, I was wondering, do Mummers mumble? and what exactly are the differences between mumbling and grumbling? See above.
I admit, I DO talk to my 2 cats and 1 dog, in the evening when my husband is at work. But that's perfectly normal!
