Saw this on a blog... loved it.

In an effort to get people to look into each other's eyes more, the government has decided to allot each person exactly one hundred and sixty-seven words, per day.  When the phone rings, I put it to my ear without saying hello.  In the restaurant I point at chicken noodle soup.  I am adjusting well to the new way.  Late at night, I call my long distance lover and proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.  I saved the rest for you.  When she doesn't respond, I know she's used up all her words so I slowly whisper I love you, thirty-two and a third times.  After that, we just sit on the line and listen to each other breathe.
