Climate-ology

He: Hello!!!
She: Hi!!!
He: It's been a while! How are you?
She: Am fine! Thank you! And you!?
He: OK!

(Silence)

She: Just look at this weather! Tssst Tssst!
He: Yeah! Sucks! The rain! tsssst tsssst!
She: How come it rains so much? This isn't the raining season!
He: It's the pollution!
She: Huh?
He: Yeah, you know, the "réchauffement de la planéte" and stuff!
She: Oh yeah!
He: But Quatre Bornes sure sucks! It's been raining non-stop!
She: Yeah, the track back there is all muddy!
He: (looks down at her sandals) You aught to wear better shoes!
She: Yeah I guess...

(Silence)

He: You live around here don't you?
She: Yeah, around Sodnac.
He: My mum's family live in Curepipe.
She: hummm
He: Yeah, my aunt called to say that its raining real bad there too. The humidity is unbearable!
She: Yeah, my coucin is married there. She said the same thing.

(Silence)

He: You ever been to UK?
She: No.
He: The weather is much as bad there too...

At this point, I couldn't help it. I had to laugh. Why do people feel the need to talk when they have nothing to say!?

Bonjour Fiténa,

A lovely post. I guess it's not only us British people who complain about the weather all the time!

J'espere que tout va bien poir toi!

lol...i can't stand the way people look at me in those situations. they just can't enjoy the silence and the feeling of being there! i say: stop talking and feel the moment!!!

It's amazing how this happens, as if one of the two feels the need to fill the empty gap with useless conversation.

people just love to talk too much because they fear silence, peut-etre? (sorry can't get the accents up fitena)

Hahah, agreed! Did you just meet? I figure that happens because people want that familiarity that comes with time and squeeze it all in. But sounds like you didn't get past the weather :)
