´ The Openings and the Closings -
May 26, 2016

In daily conversations people let openings go by to make a conversation more fun and playful all the time and it breaks my heart. Chances are we all have plenty opportunities to be serious all day long. Why oh why persist beyond the opening? If someone makes an outrageous statement don’t freaking research it on Google if it’s true or not. Build on the story and ask more questions to help them make it even more outrageous.

Similarly if someone is telling a story and you know the punch line swallow it. This is not the time to show how perceptive and smart you are. You can brag all night about that but don’t ruin other people’s stories.

If we pay attention to the openings and avoid doing the closings we can all have some fun together that will lighten everyone’s mood.
