Those Conversation Lulls
Anyway, way off track, I got the restaurant about the same time some of his friends did. I hate when the only thing I have in common with people is a common friend. So I sat with the husband and wife team that I have had the pleasure of meeting a couple times. They are kind of boring and the first thing they talked about when I sat down was their children (and they always show me pictures). After our initial salutations, the wife reached for her purse. I thought great pictures of the kids. I wouldn't mind so much if I actually liked this couple, but I don't. They are the type that if they could put up a projector, we'd have a slide show.
I guess I appeared bored because after awhile, and after they had gone through their photo album, the husband says "This month went by so fast huh"? Why do people say things like that to keep the conversation going? Things like "Funny weather we are having right?".
At the end of the night, the wife handed me this small envelope with an invitation. It seems like little Charlie is going to be six.
P.S. I'm glad I can be the meeting place for Cher and Shife.
