A whole lot of it is TMI that I really, really would prefer never to hear. Once, while waiting at the car wash, I heard a complete break-up of a relationship.

Do you know what your audience remembers most?

Communication is a constant process. Even when you think it’s over, it still goes on. And, in the instance I am referring to now, it starts before you may actually think it does.
