haircut small talk

I avoided getting my haircut yesterday because I didn’t feel like making small talk.

Don’t get me wrong, I throw some mean small talk, but sometimes I just want to relax. So what I’m imagining is a hair cuttery where there is no small talk allowed, and instead you have a tv with tivo or something and maybe a couple game consoles. You could easily squeeze in a half hour episode of some show or play some super mario cart (maybe there have been some other games invented in the last 8 years too).

Definition of the day
awktalk: the awkward small talk that you make with someone you don’t know very well

  1. if you don’t want to have small talk, just refuse to talk! you’ll look like a rude bastard, but it’ll make for a funny story later 🙂 I like the definition, very true. Did you see i moved my blog to my own site?

  2. You’re right Ben, I should put more focus on “the funny story later.” Who needs friends when you can be mean to people and have a good story to tell? Just kidding man.

    Yeah I did see your blog moved…how are you liking wordpress?

  3. You know, barber shops used to be huge social gathering places. Men would do the small talk and women would gossip all day long. I’ve come across a little bit of that cultural element here.

    I see awktalk coming on as a site idea.
