Re: Conversation

Then talk to yourself. Discuss things you need to talk about. Ask yourself questions. Argue both sides. Criticise, evaluate, probe and most importantly laugh. Just don't fight . THere's enough other people that will willingly do that with you. And anybody who says "Talking to yourself is the first sign of madness" knows nothing about mental illness.

Re: Conversation

What if you have nothing to say to yourself, after many one sided conversations.

In olden days there was always conversation to be had Spitty, and when they ran out of natter someone went out and bought a ‘conversation piece’, stuck it on the mantle piece or a table, then started conversing about it for hours on end, never a dull moment back in the old days.

We once spent a wet afternoon in an old country pub talking about a wooden bucket handle that hung over the bar, riveting stuff, it eventually graduated on to Handel's Messiah and it’s premier in Dublin, useful and educational things them bucket handles.

Absolutely.

Whenever Marge telephones her aged mother, I can foresee the procedure before it begins.

Marge says a few words, then apparent silence for perhaps half-an-hour interspersed by the occasional word every few minutes from Marge.
