We’ve all had these conversations – you suddenly meet someone you used to know that you’ve lost touch with (former co-worker, really distant relative, etc.) and then engage in idle chitchat, wondering how long you should let the conversation go on and still be polite. I’m usually really bad at this, letting it go on WAAAAAAAY too long and getting wrapped up in topics that I have no interest in, such as discussing the merits of the French system of justice in Louisiana or how to effectively field-strip an M-16.
That’s all I got for now, folks. See you on Wednesday!
