When I was going over my evaluation with the clerkship director, I actually LOLed (that's right, I laughed out loud) and told him I've never ever in my life been called concise. Verbose, repetitive, "uses too much flowery language," loquacious, circumlocutory, magniloquent, uses too many details, annoyingly repetitive, tells really long stories, seriously repetitive, "please just get to the damn point" ...now those are phrases I'm used to hearing about myself. Concise is a new one. Maybe I'm maturing?
Confession. To my knowledge, no one has ever actually called me circumlocutory. Or magniloquent for that matter. But I prefer those to "annoyingly talkative." But seriously, try having a conversation with me after a couple beers and tell me I'm not loquacious.
