Heh. So he texted you instead! LOLOLOL But he *loves* the minion! He's still thinking on a name, though.

Ah texting...that's the way to go. Cute minion!! We had a good day of being in the spirit....bourbon toddies to the trick.

What a cool minion. And, 10? That's a hard one. I always start with the stupid stand-by "How's school?" because I have gray hair and can act the doddering old fool very well, thank you! I do refuse to pat them on the head like their puppies, though;-P

That is the coolest minion! Since I have a nearly 10 year old boy I will tell you what to ask: What video games do you like? They will talk nonstop for the next 30 minutes. You won't have to say a word.

Yet another wonder minion. Attention whoring?!?! No way!! Not on the internets!

That's pretty much how I feel about all phone conversations. No, wait. That's pretty much how I feel about all conversations in general, unless there's something specific to talk about. I'm a total loser when it comes to "small talk". It's mystifying to me. My sister, on the other hand, is excellent at it. I have deep envy.

If ever you talk to Ed, you ask about trains, and if ever you talk to Jack, you say "batman". No word yet for the third one, though I suppose when he's born you can ask his brothers "how's the baby". ;)

That's a very special minion. You're a great auntie.

I'm still whinging even though it's Thursday. We've got another few inches of snow but at least it's the fluffy kind.

I ask about school, their friends, when they're getting married, having kids. Occasionally age appropriately. Hey, I had to endure it, now it's my turn. It's character building. (Is too.)

I hate small talk with a passion, especially with smaller children. I will, however, ask how school is, just because.

This time of year just magnifies everything, it seems. I'm trying to keep things in perspective.

That is a cute minion, and I love that you spun it, too! If you ever find the answer to fixing awkward conversations, please let me know.

Oh, if only it were only seasonal. xo
