I promised a friend I’d post this story from NCA – the annual convention of the National Communication Association, aka where all the communication profs get together to share research and network.
My friend was riding the elevator, along with other people wearing the NCA name tag, and one who wasn’t. The tagless person asked:
“So, what do you communicate here, at the National Communication Association?”
A young man in the elevator answered:
“Fear and anxiety.”
I’ll write about this more some other time, but for now, I want the story to speak for itself. If you’ve ever been to NCA, you probably know what I’m talking about. Maybe you want to share in the comments, if you can overcome the fear and anxiety?
