Another Monday, another year. I hope all of you had a safe and happy NYE celebration, whether you went out or stayed home. I see that the Daily Prompt isn’t going up at 9 a.m. anymore, which I vastly preferred to 8 a.m., since I’m sometimes not home at 8 o’clock, but I am at nine….however, I don’t make those calls. Sadly. Conversation has become somewhat of a lost art, I fear. With everything being online anymore, people very seldom speak face-to-face unless they have to, and therefore I feel the art of small talk has gone into steep decline. I can’t say I was ever any good at it myself, but when called upon, I can manage a basic conversation with someone and not embarrass myself in the process.
