moments to share, moments to care
wibbly wobbly yankee energy
the last trip to sweden brought some serious thoughts about this fakey-smiley-confident american personality type.
generally i suck at smalltalk and i've given up trying years ago. luckily, there must be a vibe about me that encourages really cool, weird, and intelligent people approach me, dropping the bs superficial temporary politeness and talking about deeper subjects with decent content.
so i wasn't sure how the hell to approach anyone from a nation of superficiality.
turns out, it's really simple.
step one: remember they are just people. social creatures.
step two: arm yourself with one of those charming smiles.
step three: go for it. think of your own smile as a ray of sun in their gray world of mediocrity.
might sound a little sociopathic, but hey, whatever works, huh?
