Just Talk to Me!

 

This video clip reminds me of my ill fated attempts to engage in conversation.  I think it is funny now but it never use to be. 

I tried everything to get people to talk to me.  

Ask my children.  I had a book I would pull out called “What If.” It had 4 questions to a page. I asked them to pick a page number, and a number on the page. I told them to open to that page, and to read and answer the question. 

My kids hated that book! 

Throughout my life my friends have thought they were talking to a two year old. My mother thought I was noisy. My father thought I asked to many damn questions, and many people who I wanted to know never got back with me. 

It was always an attempt to start a conversation, and to get to know someone better. 

Pursuing a legitimate give and take conversation was a challenge. 

Trust me, a question is ok. A barrage is intimidating. Remember to be patient, wait, and in the silence they will come.
