Something to Talk About


If you’re anything like me, you struggle with small talk. Every Friday, I’m putting together a bunch of different things to talk about as you head into your weekend. Hopefully they’ll spare you a few awkward silences!

For sporty friends: Have you heard of kick volleyball? The acrobatics are incredible!

For your dad who loves politics: Since Trump earned enough delegates to clinch the Republican nomination, what does he think of J.K. Rowling’s defense of his free speech? Or her comparison between him and Voldemort? Or maybe the more interesting question: Does your dad know who J.K. Rowling is?

For the social activist: What do you think of the #giveelsaagirlfriend and #givecaptainamericaaboyfriend campaigns?

For your girlfriends: Is there a kind of Christian guy you wouldn’t date?

For your techie friends: Check out the artist who paints light.

And if all else fails, read aloud the Wikipedia entry for Guam retold as a YA novel.

Enjoy your weekend!

PC: Eric Staller, “Light Domes”
