The Seven Things You're Not Supposed to Talk About


I liked this week's episode of This American Life. The idea is there are seven topics that you should avoid in conversation because they are always boring. I like this list!

Here is the transcript.  I repeat the list here.

  1. How you slept.
  2. Your period.
  3. Health. Of course if it's something serious, then that's conversation worthy, but normal sniffles, aches, and pains? No good.
  4. Your dreams.  Not big aspirations, this is literally what you dreamt last night
  5. Money.
  6. Diet. What you can and can't eat.
  7. Route. How you got here, what way you're going to get home.

I will endeavor to not waste all of your time droning on about any of these topics.
