talk smaller


blah blah blah?  well, blah.

at the grocery store a group of middle-aged women blocked my way.  overheard as i navigated between them to reach the bananas:

  woman 1:  snow is so white and pretty.
          *everyone nods*
  woman 2:  but it's cold.
          *everyone nods*
  woman 3:  when it melts everything gets wet.
          *everyone nods*
  woman 1:  sometimes your shoes get wet.  have to take care not to track that inside!
          *everyone nods, laughs*


what are your favorite conversational topics?  mine include:

"hey, we're both wearing shoes"
"my eyes help me to see"
"fire is hot"

Lol. These people need to learn that they shouldn't say anything unless it improves the silence. Then again, they wouldn't have anything to say.
