[Before we go any further, I'll have you know this is a comment-starter post because I am still too busy to post anything of substance at this moment...so talk amongst yourselves.]
Last night I was on the phone with a friend—someone I have known forEVer and usually link to but I don't want to embarrass her too much....ahem—and she said the following to me (you really don't need the context, it's crazy all on it's own): "But I don't have
any interests, that's the problem."
I'm not usually at a loss for words, but I had no response to this. Not only is it completely, utterly, 100%, totally untrue
but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how a reasonable (intelligent, interesting) human being could say something like that. "How can you think you don't have interests?" I said, at which point I then rattled off a string of interests she has.
She remained unconvinced. I said it was the most absurd conversation I ever had.
In the grand scheme of absurd conversations, I realize it's probably very normal. So go on, tell me the most absurd conversation you've ever had with someone (caveat: can't be a random wacko off the street, you have to actually know the person).
