People are different. This is a good thing. There are some in my extended circle who are very closed. Well, a few people like that. You try and engage in a conversation, and it is like trying to draw water from a stone. Something like this:
Hi, how are you, my angel?
I’m fine thanks, and yourself?
Good thanks, how is work / school / life?
Okay, I love you
I love you too
That’s it. Can’t extract more out of a conversation than that.
Well, I always thought it was me. Perhaps I should think of more exciting opening lines.
Others appear on the scene, courtesy birthdays and little people appearing out of nothing, and the conversations are totally different:
Hello, aunty Vonnie!
Hello my angel, how are you?
I’m good thanks, I passed my year, and my best subject was art, and here is me just taken now, and …
I miss you and love you lots xxxx
I miss and love you too my darling 😍
And then I realized
I never had to think up any opening line.
