Out of Words

Memory:

My grandfather had a very husky, slow, quiet voice. When I was very young I took this to mean that he was running out of words – I thought he had used up his lifetime supply. I thought I had to be very careful because I didn’t want to run out of words too. I went through a period where I didn’t say much, because I was trying to be careful and not run out.
