Talking to yourself

Does anyone else do that thing where you kind of mentally talk through something but aren’t sure whether you’ve said it out loud?

Had a strong sense that I fairly loudly said “I’m out later so I’ll activate the all day pass not the single journey ticket” at the busy bus stop.


Was jabbering to myself in the health food shop picking out some soy cream. They’re probably used to it in the health food shop.

What is that?

I’d have probably been like, soy cream, I am cream, soy cream, I am cream… Have I been saying that out loud?

soy cream
eres cream
es cream
somos cream
sois cream
