As we wrapped up the conversation she thanked me saying that she "never gets asked about anything other than her subject or students" at school. That was sad to me.
Even if we are talking to people all day every day, it's possible to still feel isolated and alone. I hate small talk for that reason. Words are spoken but nothing is said. I prefer to have a real conversation or say nothing. I don't always get to make that choice since I'm frequently bouncing around talking to education types 7 days a week, but if I have my way, I prefer to make that choice.
