Question Time: Small Talk
[image source: Son of Groucho on flickr]
If you’re out and about at all, you’ll run into small talk situations. Perhaps at the checkout, perhaps getting coffee, perhaps at the library, perhaps at school or playgroup or college or perhaps at a party or dinner, or in the staffroom at work or with customers.
What sort of small talk happens, for you, if any? What would you like to happen? How does your disability inflect your small talk, and affect your ability to participate? Have people – strangers or acquaintances – asked you about your disability? How do you feel about that? What would your ideal small-talk world look like?
