Daily Prompt: It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seats, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person your new best friend?
I’m the type of person who tries to go for the non-committal brief small talk, but ends up being part of a very long conversation. It’s not that I don’t like speaking with people, it’s just that sometimes it’s nice being left to your own thoughts. I would never move seats – I usually just try to get interested in the topic and if I can’t I act as interested as I can!
