Today has been an odd day. I've been with people I barely know, and with people I dearly love. I was part of a conversation today in which someone inserted a "hmmmm". You know the kind of 'hmmmmm" I mean. The kind where you know the person doesn't necessarily agree with what is being said. Person #1 "Well, that would be exciting!" Person #2 "That would be, hmmmm." So I wonder, what does person #2 really mean, what does that "hmmmm" mean? Why am I bothered by the "hmmmmm"? Maybe because the "hmmmm" was said by a person I barely know, about a person I dearly love? Hmmmmmm.
