She was saying she got a bunch of paperwork done, and so that felt good.
Thinking to tease her, I said, "Yeah, but you love paperwork. I mean, I'll put up with it, but you really like it."
"Well," she said, "it's something tangible. It's a physical thing you can do - you can see that you've accomplished it."
"Yeah. Okay. I can see that."
And then she said this: "And to me it seems like it's all about communication. I think communication is really important."
Chastened, I determined to do my paperwork better this year.
Communication is really important.
