IS,

“THE PEN MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD”?

At Monday night’s (11/20/23), Regular Board meeting, Ranch President Kari Vickery singled out Ranch Matters John Stevens.

Out of left field and unexpectedly, Vickery, blurted:

“Please stop that with your pen”

and added that it bothered her.

WHAT WAS STEVENS DOING WITH HIS PEN?

While Stevens was taking notes and apparently unconsciously, he was tapping his pen on his thumb. That’s what triggered Vickery’s response.

WHY DO PEOPLE TAP THEIR PENS?

“Can be a sign of boredom, contemplation and brewing creativity…”

MISOPHONIA?

‘”‘Misophonia [mi -suh-FOE-nee-uh) “Misophonia is a disorder of decreased tolerance to specific sounds or stimuli associated with such sounds. These stimuli, known as ‘triggers,’ are experiencing need as unpleasant or distressing and tend to evoke strong negative emotional, physiological, and behavioral responses that are not seen in most other people.”

(Consensus Definition of Misophinia, 2022)
