They've pretty much done that with Women's American Football and Men's Wrestling.

Sometimes we talk about what other people talk about. A married friend was telling me that her divorced neighbour is always jawing at her and/or her husband, giving them the low down on who he's done what with. Another girl with us said she found that very weird and married friend admitted it's a bit much. If they hadn't said it I'd have been quietly wondering "is that actually normal? Sounds so scabby.... ". Sometimes I've discussed with men, what "lads" chat about, and it varies loads. The sleazy ones apparently think all men are as sleazy as them, the normal ones think They're childish fantasists.

Normally though: Childbirth
Periods
Sex
God****es who mightily fecked us off
Concerns about partners
How things are going well with partners
Books
Weird or interesting archeology/local history around where you grew up or used to live
Something you saw while walking your dog or in town
Random thing that happened
Social issues
Deepest darkest fears
Dreams you had
Food
Your job (even if only to say you don't like it)
Anything different you did lately (camping came up recently)
Stereotypes
New skills
Clothes


With one friend I'd easily chat about whimsical silly stuff like where to install a trapdoor and souterrain in my garden, or we could go on a night time walk, but more often than not that'd be too out-there for most of my friends. So it depends on the dynamic and their personality.

Lots of people gossip maliciously but I don't go in for that and don't associate with serious gossips. They see it harmless, I don't.

Also food. I could talk about food all day.
I love that kind of non heated debate (except when it's sprung on you and you're too addled for it). Food, love talking about Food, history of Food, nutrition, spices, growing Food, ancient bread recipes, wartime rationing recipes, foods that were common but never eaten now..the sh1te that's in food these days...kids who think carrots are made in factories ..except most of this doesn't come up often enough unless I'm talking to a food writer or some kind of hippy apocalyptic prepper with a fermenting fetish. So come to think of it I only talk about Food with two people. Sigh

Me................. we all sit around and talk about me.


No serious answer sometimes I ask people what they did last night or what the weathers like or how they got into work, this usually leads to a barrage of questions about their car or bike or rain gear, whatever, the trick is answer a question with an answer then a question,

Example

A: Weathers rough isn’t it?

B: Ah it’s not the worst I was in Greenland last year

A: really


B: no I’m a spoofer it’s probably best that I tell you now instead of later when all of you realise I’m a liar and slag me behind my back

A: you must have had a rough childhood

B: I don’t know whether I did or whether I made it up anymore.

What I talk about most of all is other friends or interesting acquaintances. Sometimes I like to do a bit of friend matchmaking. Terrible habit of namedropping, unintentionally.


You can just talk about the weather too. It's an innate thing, we still chatter about weather as it was once a huge consideration in all our lives. Or our predecessors.

Great people talk about ideas
Average people talk about events
Small people talk about other people.
