Do you know what’s fun? Bragging about your pets; remembering movies when you were younger; talking about your first few jobs when you were a kid; discussing your favorite book; reminiscing about your time in college; etc. Aren’t these all great things and fun to do? I agree with you – they really are. And isn’t it fun to reply to memes like the following when we seen them? They give us a chance to talk about things we like and about our interests. Here is a great example:
“Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do! I’d knock on people’s doors and go, ‘Trick or treat.’ ‘No thank you.'”
Me: Ooof! It feels good to get my shoes and socks off! Riley: Did you say… socks?! Me: Yes, um… why? Riley: <dive bombs my socks face first, then proceeds push her face against the floor using my socks as a cushion> They smell good! They smell like you!
