1. So glad we got that heirloom chair. I’m not sure where else we would pile our pillows and unfolded laundry. 2. Guerrilla warfare, not gorilla warfare. 3. I saw a chipmunk that lives about a block from my house. I never knew how delightful they were. 4.…

Making small talk can be easier said than done. Most of the time though, harmless little questions will do the trick – for most people are dying to talk about themselves. Where are you from? How was the flight in? I went to Hawaii last month, you ever…
