i started doing this a few years ago and i noticed it stemmed from loneliness , i'd stop doing it when i'm busy with friends or i had someone i frequently talked to
now is this crazy?
Nope, not at all. It's a way to entertain yourself when you're alone and bored. And I do it too since I'm pretty lonely, but I don't do it if I'm with someone, like in your case.

I never talk aloud when I am alone as I said above but I don't feel that saying things out aloud makes it more crazy.
I do the first part, even and mostly when I'm alone, because - as I explained in the OP - it would be very embarrassing.

Exactly, it's completely normal.

It indeed is an extension of thought, I linked an article in my previous reply that talked about it, we start doing that in childhood.

I'll see you, in the not-too-distant future.
