Re: Conversation

I've had four long ones s'mornin!

One elderly chap stopped to talk to my dog, told me his life story and medical history, bless him.

Then my brother-in-law phoned to say he'd be calling in tomorrow, haven't heard from him in ages so caught up with his news.

Then my neighbour (another old geezer) from where I used to live, phoned and told me all the gossip and who's died.

Then my dentist phoned as I'd emailed about a crowned tooth that's been playing up. He said he'd looked at last x-ray and there's no point in trying to save it. Got an appointment on Wednesday first thing.

Phew!

Interesting.

Does that mean that you are lucky enough to have a dentist who is willing to see you regarding a problem with your tooth?

Re: Conversation

Iíve had two conversations today, one with my daughter when we took her to the Garden Centre and the other with a neighbour who was passing while I was planting some pansies.

The neighbour has just become a grandmother for the first time. Unfortunately she isnít allowed in the hospital to see her baby granddaughter due to the virus.

Yes! It was quite a surprise! I e-mailed as instructed on the answer machine thingy, through desperation, expecting to battle or plead. I could've had an appointment tomorrow if BIL wasn't coming.

Things are improving it seems!

Good for you, Tess.

I hope one day to be able to have a crown on my tooth, so I won't need to keep replacing temporary fillings every couple of weeks!

It could be worse, of course. Much worse. Some, I believe, have had to resort to pulling out their own teeth with pliers!

Re: Conversation

You can converse any time you like with your mobile phone, and generally calls are free anyway depending on your tariff. With a video-chat program such as Skype or Zoom you can even see each other face to face as you chat. There's no need to sit and talk to nobody at all.

I find that talking to myself is the only way I can engage in a sensible conversation.
