gives us the topic 'conversation'



Brains and tongues combine
To create the miracle.....


A Caliph with multiple wives
Said 'I need one with multiple lives!'
Said a servant 'That's fine!
Here is one that has nine!
And her claws will make sure she survives!'

True, but when the brain doesn't function too well, the unfortunate miracle of miscommunication is the result.

Your limerick made me laugh, and after reading your bio, my head is spinning. You've certainly been busy, haven't you? :)

We often take the ability of speech for granted, but when you really think ablout is indeed a miracle.

People do converse with their eyes, ears, and signing...I like this one!

I found myself unable to sleep in the wee hours so I crept into the living room and turned on the TV. I was happily watching a domestic drama, when my wife came in and broke the spell of communication by exclaiming that the show was in Korean. Somehow (maybe it was a dream) I was following the conversation of the characters! Or I thought I was :)

That's what conversations are for - communication. Very nicely put.

What happens when only the tongue speaks, no brain involved?
