I Need MoreDo you know people that go on and on about the most mundane topics? Have you ever tried to engage them in meaningful conversation and they ignore your prompt, getting right back in the saddle of their enlightening conversation regarding their garden club's, (after meeting) stimulating debate on the question of adding low fat chicken broth or low fat milk to diet mashed potatoes? "Helen says that she read in her weight watchers book that milk is richer than chicken broth, but, I think chicken broth makes it taste better.....blah blah blah, comma, blah blah blah"
Well, if so, do not feel alone. The last time I had a meaningful conversation with one of my local pals was sometime in the 1990's. Everyone changed at some point and I did not get the memo. My girl pals and I used to stay up all night and discuss meaningful things like philosophy and spirituality, art, literature, love, romance, sex, feelings, relationships. Now, I get emails that say. "Hi, been busy, no time, will write soon" No one talks anymore about anything much! Why do they even bother with email? I already knew that they could type a few words....no one calls and actually "shares" anymore, well almost no one. When they do call, it is generally concerning folksy tid bits about their grand kids, with the kid screaming like a "stuck pig" in the back ground. I love to chat about my Jace, but, I don't call friends up when he is having a melt down... just to share.
