I got this from her. This...tendency to use more words than necessary. She said "less true" when what she wanted to say was "incorrect." She would argue that there are fewer syllables, and then the conversation would take a strange turn to grammar lessons and "deeper meanings," that would then lead to us forgetting what we were talking about originally. She had a calm way about her that even if you were just finished talking to her about an incendiary topic, you would be walking away with the "gentler" side of the subject occupying your head. I miss her.
