"Circumstantial speech (also referred to as circumstantiality) is the result of a so-called "non-linear thought pattern" and occurs when the focus of a conversation drifts, but often comes back to the point. In circumstantiality, apparently unnecessary details and seemingly irrelevant remarks cause a delay in getting to the point."

Who knew there was a formal term (not to mention a Wiki page) dedicated to my random babbling!

I think my brain caught a snag when you mentioned layered cakes. To be honest, I can't get back to my own reason for adding it.

Now where did I put that boning saw??


Jesus saves. Buddha recycles.
