JusWondering… Can’t We Small Talk About Anything Else?

Stormy Daniels > Stormy Rain Clouds

I’m a big proponent of human interaction.  But I am also a borderline misanthrope.

So I guess I’m all about everybody talking to each other so long as they don’t talk to me.

That being said, I can’t stand small talk.

Why does it always have to be about the weather?  (Click here for Stormy Rain Clouds.)

Why does it have to be about how business is doing?  (Click here for how business is going.  What?  The link doesn’t work?  Neither does 14.6% of people in Michigan.)

I suggest we make light of various surroundings, like I did one day.  This cute girl and I were waiting for an elevator, so I mentioned how convenient a giant slide would be in traversing floors… at least going down:

When Darwinism ruled the park scene...

She thought that a fireman poll might be better, and I agreed:

I'm waiting...

We got on the elevator as another couple approached.  I asked what floor, and they remained captivated in their own world.

I shrugged and the girl smiled.

See, why couldn’t it be like that all the time?  Repartee… flat-out ignoring…

…and the cute girl part?

That helped a little bit.

Make that a lotta bit.

    Hey, I’m in that 14.6% :(
    Small talk does suck, I need to follow your lead in learning to break away from it.

    It’s not small talk with cute girls, it’s indirect opening…yours was very good, you just need a follow up.

    Yeah, after I posting, I realized I was flirting. I’m such a dumbass…
