# 17 With tail

Donna, Doni, Lady D asked me: Do you avoid gossip. Does 'small talk' bore you? What sort of conversations interest you the most.

I've never been a gossip kind of girl. I mean, of course I'm going to talk to my friends, if something interesting happens but I tend to avoid the hurtful kind of gossip. I don't like judging people or talking bad about them. I've been known to walk away from such conversation.

I guess that's also the reason why I'm bad at small talk. :) I'm comfortable with silence. But it also depends on my energy level. If I'm all hyped then I have no problem chatting up people but if I'm drained then I don't even bother opening my mouth.

I like analyzing things but you won't see me join in on a conversation about politics. I like happy topics. I keep reminding my hubby to stop telling me about negative stuff. He's like, there's been an accident last night and so many people died, and I'm like, why are you telling me this? Did someone we know died? No? Then tell me something nice like how many babies were born or something. :)

I get easily frustrated and I have a physical reaction to injustice, so I don't see the point of stressing out and worrying, if there's nothing I can do about it. Happy thoughts! Puppies, kittens, butterflies. :)

Do you have a question for me? Leave it in the comments. I have an answer for you. :)

  1. Hi Natasha, thank you for visiting and commenting so sweetly! You made me smile this morning...even though it's way too early and we are out of coffee...! I like your post, as I am bad at small talk, too. I wonder if it's because I am introverted...and shy. Anyway, local news depresses me. It's always sad or very bad news. Do you know the song, "Just Give Me the Good News"? It's by the Saw Doctors. Hope you have a happy day! ~kath

  2. Natasha, i love you already... cause you sound like ME!! LOL... ;-) Seriously, you and i sound alike. The topics of discussion, the avoiding small talk, the avoiding gossip...the frustration at injustice. Yup, you sound like me. So now we're friends. xox
