And one way that where I live now is like where I grew up, and not like New York
When you run into someone you know--even someone you've just met once, like the County Ag guy coming by to check the fruit-fly monitoring trap he set up in your fig tree--you are supposed to make small talk with them for a while. So far I have made small talk with five people today. I like it. Small talk is one of my particular skills.
