Artful Speech from a Forked Tongue

My husband has a tendency to speak very quickly and use at least fifty more words per sentence than necessary.  When I first met him, a friend said to me, “he says a lot, but yet, doesn’t really say anything at all.”  I have come to understand that this is part of his deception technique.  He speaks very quickly; to one: make it seem as though he is accomplishing a lot, when in reality, he really isn’t doing anything at all; and two: he seems to believe if he can talk circles around you, he will divert you from the actual question you just asked.

Does it work?  No, but it is so tiring to listen to, that I eventually give up, just so I don’t have to hear his voice any longer.
