 I just have to share....

So today was a slam packed day, LOADS of people in my face.

At about 4:30, in the midst of family, fucktions, places to go things to do....I found myself explaining myself to my daughter, age 11.

It went like this:

"Honey, I think my period is coming tomorrow, and I am **really** low on patience today. (she asked if I would have more patience tomorrow, I assured her I would.) I am not a fan of small talk. Small talk is what happens when people are uncomfortable with the silence in the air they share. I am never uncomfy with that silence, but many, many others are. Today I am reaching my limit for small talk."

Know what she said? She said, "is that why you like Cafemom so much, they don't do that small talk thing?"

rolling on floor

Bless her heart.

 I forgot to ask, do YOU like small talk? Are YOU good at it?

I had about a 20 min break today, and I settled into a chair with NO ONE else around at dd's game....and out of the blue, some dude came up and asked me if the chair next to me was taken. There were some 75 other free chairs. I wanted to rip his head off.

LOL, I think if I didn't want anyone talking to me (I always do cause I am very outgoing and always at home) then I would say something like "Yes, it is" or "No" but then act crazy, like you are possessed or something.

BTW, your daughter's comment is hilarious.

Not fond of small talk, although I can admit I turn in to a chatterbox, with very little to say, when I am around some one I don't know very well.  That dead air is something I usually enjoy but other times, even though I don't want to, I tend to talk and talk.  *sigh*  More about being nervous than wanting to actually speak with some one.

I think I roll my eyes when people talk about the weather.
