I was talking to our CTO over a few cold ones the other evening and he
experiences the same phenomenon as I. This guy is pretty smart, both
academically and "street", writes and reads quite a bit, and is usually the
"turn-to" guy when I need a complex topic clarified. I know that this group
reads, re-reads, edits, etc. , so I'm wondering if this phenomenon is
endemic to us word types.

When reading text (it doesn't matter if the text is a novel, newspaper
article, user's manual, what-have-ya) I "hear" a narrator reading the words.
When I read a Tom Clancy novel, each of the characters have a different
voice and the third-person arrogation is a more-or-less monotone newscaster
voice. This has been going on since I stared reading, around age 4ish. I
guess I always knew this was going on, but I just "realized" it after
talking to another who shares the experience.
Do any of ya'll have that going on?

Wait, I'll find a tie in... Oh yea, problematic editing of client

*glad to have this typed before the voice beckons me back*
