Communication My style with an egg is: Often Sometimes Never I save them for a long time and then I throw them! I can’t hold on to an egg. I throw it hard and fast! I avoid the person so that I don’t have to toss the egg! I toss eggs gently to people I don’t know very well, but I throw them to my family! I recognize when I have an egg and toss it with great care. I wrap my egg with so many layers of expectations and apologies that no one is sure I have tossed one!
