Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings.
– Miles Franklin (1954)
I guess that is why there are so many people on Facebook and Twitter;
why we blog;
and why so many of us have pets, who are always willing to listen –
even if sometimes they have to be bribed with a treat!
I, myself, find that everyone tells me their life story. Perfect strangers will accost me in the supermarket and proceed to gab away like I’m a long lost friend.
I think I have “sucker” written on my forehead!
