There has to be something more interesting than the weather to talk about when people first see each other. At the medical clinic where I work part-time, though, I am a slave to falling back on that most mundane of topics when I’m striking up a conversation with someone. It’s the one impersonal thing we know for a fact that everyone else is experiencing.
Maybe, if I dared to be different I could ask for their answers to the following run-down on what they are currently experiencing:
Currently, I am…
Reading: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This has been on my reading list since my sister recommended it. I snatched it up at the library and am thoroughly enjoying Doerr’s writing style and even the unique format!
Drinking: Twining’s Green Tea. I’m still a major black tea drinker, but it’s been making me lethargic, so I save it for bedtime and switched to green in the morning.
Listening: At this very moment, I’m listening to the oldies station. The House of the Rising Sun…
Eating: I just texted a photo of my lunch to a friend. I had a salad, honey glazed pecans, and blackberries. I told her I was eating like a Redwall monk today.
Watching: The last couple of episodes of Stranger Things Season 1 so that I can move on to Season 2!!!!! AND Suits! I’m hooked.
Following: the unfolding of Larry Nassar’s trial. His abuse of women and girls under the sanction of the US gymnastics Olympics team for years is dumbfounding…
Celebrating: My sister’s birthday with P.F. Chang’s and a shopping trip!
Have a great weekend everyone! How about that weather??
