I’m trying to reconcile with small talk. When I meet someone I think is fascinating, I have an urge to rip their brain in half and take a look. I understand this isn’t a usual convention. People don’t normally ask strangers about their fears or their traumas. And I don’t expect people to hand over their intimate psyches. I just wonder how far you’re willing to expose yourself. And in doing so, I expose myself too. I teach you about me. About my fascination with the inner workings of your mind, my curiosity with the lenses you wear every day. I’m more interested by what you’re looking for from life than how you feel about the weather. Although I can learn something about you from that too.
I’m trying to reconcile with small talk. Trying to extract how you feel about yourself when you talk about the hail storm.
