Under the Quilt

I'm here. You're here. Let's talk amongst ourselves.

It's a small, small world (of talk)

People view small talk in different ways.

Some see it as mindless drivel that is a waste of their time. If you don't have anything interesting or of importance to say, then keep your trap shut.

Some see it as an excellent way to get to know people. The longer you just keep asking the other person questions about themselves, the more you get to know them.....sort of like an interview. Those same people that don't enjoy small talk may feel like all of these questions are too probing. They may also feel like they don't have the right to ask personal questions of others.....therefore they never really get to know other people that well....thus not becoming close friends with people.

Small talk is truly an art, a skill.
