So how ’bout that local sports team?

ah, small talk.

Doesn’t matter if you like it, but you gotta be good at it.

The Wikipedia says, “Small talk is conversation for its own sake.”  What do the pros say?

– eHow says you should talk to yourself in the mirror.
– EnglishClub.com encourages ESL students start with the classic weather truisms.
– Don’t brag, says LifeHack.
– Debra Fine has written a whole tome on the topic – big book on small talk.
– Career Builder? Be the first to say hello because small talk is more important than your GPA.

Thoughts?
