There’s nothing worse than that awkward moment when you realize you’ve gone on a bit too long about something. Or you feel the familiar pain of having stuck your foot in your mouth-again! With so many ways to “communicate” and the never- ending need to multi-task, it’s no wonder we just keep talking and talking and talking. If we’re all talking, who’s listening? Everyone from talk show guru’s to sage grandmothers have touted the benefits of being quiet, listening more, and even setting aside days or weekends to just stop talking.
This Friday, March 9th, Eddie Murphy’s latest movie, A Thousand Words, explores this very subject. In the film Murphy’s character has to zip it up or else. Yes, his life depends on it! Kerry Washington co-stars with Murphy and it seems the harder he tries to stop talking the more questions she has. Have you ever consciously made a decision to live a hushed life. Well, I have and I only made it a half day. (See Trailer Below, Contest Details)
