The virtues of paperwork

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.
