546 extra words per day

"Researchers recorded the daily conversations of 400 university students in the United States and Mexico over a period of several days. They found that females spoke about 16,215 words each day, and males uttered an average of 15,669 words, which was considered a statistical dead heat."

Everyone is pooh-poohing 546 extra words a day. I say 546 extra words a day are A LOT. 546 words is an entire daily essay about a husband's

  • shortcomings
  • honey dos
  • dammit do this or you will be found face down floating in the river.
546 words is:

  • 3,822 words per week (yikes!)
  • 116,571 words per year
  • 2,331,429 words over the course of a 20 year marriage
The good thing is, not all those words are directed at the husband.

On a personal level, I am a BIT talky. My poor, poor future wife - whomever she may be...
