i get very stressed out when people start talking about the weather...
it means i’m involved in a conversaton that doesn’t matter. we are simply talking to talk, and have nothing relevant to talk about. probably something more relevant could be thought of to talk about, but we are both too lazy to find that topic, so instead, we talk about the weather.
and it’s usually in the form of complaint. complaining about the weather. if i’m in a weather-complaint conversation, i am screaming in my head “shut up! talk about politics or religion! anything! anything else! stop complaining about something that is ABSOLUTELY BEYOND YOUR CONTROL!”
it’s okay to talk about that jaggoff cab driver who splashed you, or the jaggoff passenger who put their wet umbrella on the seat, or the fact that it’s armageddon outside and some girl still wore sandals. but please, let’s not talk about the weather.
the most awesome thing about julie is that her interviews always read like she had DAYS to come up with the funniest, wittiest things a person could say and sound off the cuff…but she actually says them off the cuff. and it’s a funny, fancy cuff that every lady wishes were at the end of her sleeve.
