Gibber Jabber

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ defines "gibberish" as:

1. rapid chatter like that of monkeys


2. incomprehensible talk; nonsense

My confession at this point is that I tend to talk a lot of gibberish (as defined in both ways), especially when I meet someone new or when I'm in an anxiety inducing situation, or some combination of both.
 
Such a moment is approaching on Tuesday morning when my dear sister flies home after two years O/S with her new American boyfriend, M.
 
The idea of this fills me with great excitement and great anxiety. I just know my tendancy to gibber will be at it's peak in such a situation and I am preparing myself for the worst (and I hope you are too, JB, if you're reading this).
 
If you are reading this JB, I apologies in advance for anything stupid, offensive, unfunny, low brow and/or downright embarrassing I may, and  probably will, say.
 
As I've often said, I only open my mouth to change feet.

See, this is where a stiff brandy or three might come in handy...

So glad you'll get to see your sister soon. Is her plan to stay in Australia, or will she be heading back to Europe? In any case, enjoy your time together!
