Small talk thread

I’ve noticed that the ‘say something boring’ thread has turned into a small talk thread, which is all well and good.

I thought there might be some interest in a small talk thread so I’m starting this one.

How’s the weather?
Is your favorite team winning?
Are the trains on time today?
Do you like small talk?
Why is it small?

and any other small talk.

Because it’s so boring there isn’t much to say about it .

Small talk is what makes the world go round.
I call it pleasantries,where you chat to a total stranger and you both walk away with a smile on your face.


Able seaman Johnson is hanging out his smalls
And if able seaman Johnson’s smalls should accidently fall
Able seaman Johnson is going up the wall

I’ve noticed that there’s a hosepipe ban in Sussex, who’d have thought it!
I’m going to make sure I have a reasonable store of bottled water, not for gardening I hasten to add :sunflower:

Small talk is always a good thing.

My Australian BH would like to know why the Brits call it a hosepipe and not just a hose.I couldn’t enlighten.

I think I have the answer although it might seem a little silly, it’s about formality.

If I were in the garden watering the plants, filling up the paddling pool then it’s hose, dead laid back and casual.

Thames water for example would use the word hosepipe rather than hose as it’s a more professional word.

I use the word professional loosely, this is the small talk thread so I’m not going to kick off :wink:

Small talk eliminates the need for big speeches.


Blimey Ian!

Just for a second I misread your post thinking that you mentioned big breeches.

In my defence it’s been a long day and I’m on my second Kronenberg.
