As I was in pre-op at our local hospital being prepped for cataract surgery, the nurse asked me “Do you have anything that comes out of your mouth?” To which I immediately responded “Words.”
I felt clever when she told me that no one has ever given her that reply. Then a little embarrassed when I realized that she meant dentures or retainers.
But I have a body filled with words.
Words pour out of my mouth, whether anyone wants to hear them or not.
Words pour out of my mouth, whether anyone wants to read them or not.
Words represent ideas and are unstoppable.
