The Return of Small Talk

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about how I’m not really excited about the return of polite chit chat. I am super excited about the return of something resembling normal life, though. It’s just the whole… running into someone you kinda know but not really and then you have to talk about some mundane shit, and neither of you care, and it’s just a dumb game. I forgot how much this annoyed me because it was missing from my life for so long, but now it’s back, and it’s even more awkward than ever before because everyone has been shut inside for a year and no one knows how to be a human anymore.

I guess we can all use a little Larry David in our lives after 2020. And we’re about to get it.
