Zip those lips!

 
I’m 16 and a serious over-talker, especially when I’m excited or nervous. People get very irritated with me, and I don’t know how to stop. Please help me break this habit.

 

Dear Gabby,

Don’t just think, I have to stop talking; think, I have to start listening. People like others to ask what’s going on in their lives. After someone’s game, test or audition, ask, “How did it go?” Also, remember that, except your grandma, most people aren’t dying to know every little detail. If someone asks where you’re going for the holidays, try, “I’m going skiing. How about you?” instead of, “First, we’re flying to Salt Lake City, then hitting Alta, then Park City, then The Canyons, then Snowbird…” Must all you conversations always be exactly 50-50? No. Just be sure the person across from you gets a chance to do something besides nod.
