One of the best articles I’ve read on Medium. Sometimes when I’m feeling snarky or in a situation where I’m trapped, like on a plane, I’ll count the questions I’ll ask the person I’m talking to until they finally ask me a question about myself. I once flew from one coast to another without being asked a single question. Not continuous conversation but off and on. Now I just take out my sleep mask, neck pillow and earbuds <g>…probably healthier for me <g>.
