Small Minds Small Talk

I said I’d let you know how it went yesterday.

“Good morning.”

“Good morning, Mercy. How are you?”

“I am floral.”

“Floral. Well I guess that’s good.”

End of conversation. Nothing meaningful exchanged. Total waste of talk.

Pretty weeds in my lawn.
Bloom on chives in my herb garden.
Iris near my neighbor’s mudslide.

Today’s exchange:

“Good morning.”

“Good morning, Mercy. How are you today?”

“I am responsive.”

“Responsive?”

“Yes, I am responsive.”

“Responsive. Well, I guess that’s a start.”

“Yes. It is a start.”

(Sigh.)  What’s a girl gotta do to break the bonds of small talk?

— Mercy
