Celtic Advent Day 20: Tea Time

Celtic Advent Day 20:

Take a friend to tea or coffee, leave the smart phone in your bag. 

Oh, what I would give for small coffee talk or conversation over a cup of chai. I used to have this neighbor who would come over, or I would go over there, and we would enjoy morning coffee together. It was great hearing funny stories, working through the sad tales, and learning about each other.

One key ingredient I have learned to use to make great conversation is ask questions. It keeps small talk from being too small, and it shows the person you are interested, therefore, they are interesting. We do not need to whip out our phones for this. Just be there. Just be present in the conversation and enjoy the company. Enjoy this opportunity. 

 

 

 

Just for giggles, does anyone remember Coffee Talk on SNL from ages ago?
