Ramblings: Misadventures of a Social Dipstick

August 17, 2008

Oi… Sometimes I wonder why I leave the house. Every time I do, it becomes increasingly apparent that I have no idea how to communicate with other people, let alone make friends. The fact that I have any friends at all is a no small miracle.

However, I have picked up on one conversational… thingy that can be employed during lulls in the talking: ask about the Wiggles.

I know, it sound ridiculous. But when you’re in your late teens/early twenties, the Wiggles are such a random thing to talk about that everyone’s got something to say, and everyone’s opinions are going to be a bit different, and before you know it, BAM! Instant discussion. About the Wiggles. It’s surprisingly effective.

So… yeah. That’s all I’ve got.

Cheers,

WK
