"Not conversing," said Eeyore. "Not first one and then the other. You said 'Hallo' and Flashed Past. I saw your tail in the distance as I was meditating my reply. I had thought of saying 'What?' ---but, of course, it was then too late."
"Well, I was in a hurry."
"No Give and Take," Eeyore went on. "No Exchange of Thought: 'Hallo---What'----I mean, it gets you nowhere, particularly if the other person's tail is only just in sight for the second half of the conversation."
Yes, today was a nice, bizy day and thus our Exchange of Thought will be limited. Sorry, Eeyore. Wade was bizy too.
