unconsciously replace fact with fantasy in one's memory
talk socially without exchanging too much information; "the men were sitting in the cafe and shooting the breeze"
i like words. i have been criticised for using long ones occasionally when short ones would do, but i disagree. sometimes the longer ones have meaning that the short ones don`t.
and i enjoy the ambiguity.
i was reminded of the word confabulate in a discussion with david jacobs, an investigator into the reports by some of alien abductions.
he felt that the majority of reports contained confabulations.
i have news for david.
all reports of human behaviour contain confabulations.
and the subsequent analysis.
and so to politics.
or, the leading of the lambs to the slaughter.........(again.)
