Conversation is a Lost Art
Do you go to your high school reunions? My classmates are getting ready to have one, let’s call it the 15th-ish. I haven’t been to one. Maybe if I had a good high school experience or if I stayed in my home town or had any IRL friends from high school or looked like I did in high school, bangs and all, maybe I’d go back.
There’s a Facebook page dedicated to talking about the reunion, and I’m fascinated by what everyone is doing. I also think Facebook and social media will be the demise of civilization.
Another time I s’pose. A couple weeks ago, someone posted something like if you RSVPd and you didn’t buy your ticket, you suck. I’m totally paraphrasing. Because apparently the person in charge made reservations based on how many RSVPs she got, and she was going to get stuck paying for the people who didn’t buy tickets. She’s a better person than I am, which goes without saying even though I said it.
So anyway, there’s a post that everyone sucks…seriously, I don’t want cards and letters, I know it didn’t actually say that. And someone commented, “I didn’t rsvp because hanging out with people I haven’t seen in 20 plus years doesn’t appeal to me, but what happened here? Didn’t we graduate with over 600 people? It is surprising that there is such a low turnout.” Oh my gosh, I laughed all day. And as you can imagine, he was hung by his toes and burned in effigy.
I’m sure his point was, where is everybody who wants to hang out together and catch up? but I think most people only read the first sentence. And, look, it’s not for me either, however, anyone coming through Denver, I’m good for a lunch. but after everyone started in on him, the poor guy couldn’t say anything right.
Hey, look, I’m talking through my photo blog!!
Sunshine came home tonight because she had a doctor’s appointment and we went to Chipotle for dinner on my cousin Cari’s dime. She sent a gift card as thank you for the piano.
Lola got in a little lovin’ this week when she jumped on Bella for a little inter species hugging.
Moonshine got a little surprise hugging as well. And I’m just going to say one of these hugs ended in violence. I’ll let you guess which one.
Another one of my pet peeves is busy bodies. Someone who’s just out to make trouble based on their love of drama with no actual knowledge of what’s going on. Remember Mrs. Kravitz? What a busy body!!
My twin cousins had a birthday party and Moonshine and my Uncle Danny were bonding over their love of pastels as he was showing her how to take a more flattering selfie.
Tenderheart joined high school POMS where she is bonding over her love of matching outfits and giant bows.
Finally, whatever happened to the art of conversation??
